The Media and the Law Rountable, co-sponsored by the University of Georgia School of Law, UGA College of Journalism and Mass Communication, and the American Bar Association, was held on March 16, 1995 at the Marriott Marquis in Atlanta, Georgia. It was broadcast on C-SPAN II and a condensed version aired on COURT TV. Is a fair trial possible in the age of modern media? What impact have the technological advances of newsgathering had on the delivery of justice? Should the judicial system become more restrictive of trial coverage? This roundtable was summarized in the Spring 1995 Advocate Issue, Volume 29, Number 2.
