Approaching the Bar - Journalists and Lawyers Face Off

Date: Thursday, May 18, 2017 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM
Venue: Titanic Room / Kieran's Irish Pub  Minneapolis, MN United States  Get Directions
Total Price: $10.00

Deadline to Register: May 17, 2017

By American constitutional design and often by necessity, journalists and lawyers can make for strange and uncomfortable bedfellows.  Each profession arguably needs the other to fully vindicate its mission.  But the two have different missions, pressures, and clients/audiences, and perhaps as a result they often fail to understand the other. Sometimes, they even drive each other a bit crazy.  Join our esteemed panel of attorneys and journalists as they discuss how both sides can work better together for everyone’s benefit.

Registration begins at 4:45 p.m.  Please join us for cocktails and complimentary hors d'oeuvres after the presentation.
