Florida Bar gearing up for Reporters’ Workshop

The Florida Bar

The Florida Bar is looking for nominations for its 28th annual Reporters’ Workshop, to be held in Tallahassee this Oct. 16-17.

“Nominations must be made by editors, publishers or news directors and include the journalist’s background, current assignments and contact information,” a Thursday press release said.

Nominations need to be received by 5 p.m. Friday, Aug. 25 at The Bar’s Public Information Department. They can be emailed to dfrazier@floridabar.org, faxed to 850-561-9429, or mailed to: Reporters’ Workshop, The Florida Bar, 651 E. Jefferson St., Tallahassee, FL 32399.

“The selection process will be completed by early September, and those selected for participation will be notified by email,” the release said.

It’s designed for two dozen “print, online, TV and radio journalists who are new to the courts and legal beats, or new to Florida,” it said. “Workshop scholarships cover two nights’ hotel accommodations and workshop meals. Travel expenses and incidentals are the responsibility of the participant or the participant’s employer.”

Topics include the Constitution Revision Commission, “Fake News,” libel and defamation, and public records access. For more information, click here.
