Credit Hours:

Course Description: 

The competing values of personal privacy and government transparency are proving increasingly difficult to balance in an era of online publishing, archiving and searchability. This course will survey recent developments in the law of news-gatherers' access to information and public spaces, where that right of access collides with evolving notions of privacy, and how courts and legislatures are reconciling the two. This is a graded course.
