    Just after the 2016 election, a panel of media law scholars and journalists gathered at the AALS Annual Meeting in San Francisco to predict the future of press freedoms under President Donald Trump. Now, two years later, the same panel—including newcomer Paul Farhi, the Washington Post’s media reporter—reunites to weigh the accuracy of those predictions, to assess the current state of press freedoms in the Trump era, and to predict what the next two years and beyond may hold for journalists and the laws that protect them.

    Business meeting at program conclusion.
