Michael Lambert guest lectured at the Boston University Summer Journalism Institute today for 45 high school journalists from across the county. He provided insights about the legal issues journalists face and how they can use the law to support their reporting. Bringing a comprehensive approach, he also explained the practical implications of media and First Amendment law principles, such as defamation, privacy, and copyright. The students asked questions throughout the lecture, finding a particular interest in the application of laws to the Internet and social media.
