The Fight for FOIA: A Conversation About the State of Government Transparency, Marquette University, Milwaukee

April 2 at 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm EDT

2024 Nieman Lecture
The Freedom of Information Act, the federal law recognizing the public’s right to government information, is more than 50 years old but faces challenges old and new. The advent of the internet and digital records has created a new world of opportunities and impediments for laws originally designed for a hard-copy era. The panel, comprised of a leading FOIA scholar and two investigative journalists, will consider the state of freedom of information laws, including enduring problems like delay and access to law enforcement as well as potential solutions.
