Law & the Media workshop on February 2


The Houston Bar Association’s 27th Law & the Media program will examine “Crimes Against Humanity: Science, Smugglers and Survivors.” This year’s two-theme, two-panel seminar includes journalists, attorneys and newsmakers at the intersection of two of Houston’s most challenging legal and societal issues: forensic science and exoneration controversies and the epidemic of human trafficking.
The program will be from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 2, 2013, at South Texas College of Law, located at 1303 San Jacinto.

Law & the Media is sponsored by the Houston Bar Association, the Society of Professional Journalists and the Houston Press Club.

Members of the media and communication professionals, law students and journalism students can attend at no cost. Attorneys pay $50 for 3.0 hours CLE credit. Watch for detailed information and a registration form coming soon.

For more information contact Tara Shockley at or 713-759-1133.
