Join Senior Staff Attorney Ghita Schwarz for a live briefing with the Practising Law Institute (PLI) on the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). Since 1966, the Freedom of Information Act has given the public the right to seek a broad range of records from federal administrative agencies and to enforce those rights in Court. Used by individuals, scholars, activists, and corporations, it is a vital tool of democratic accountability and transparency. This one-hour web briefing will discuss the basics of making FOIA requests, exhausting the administrative appeal process, and litigating failures to disclose in federal court. You can find out more information, including CLE credit details and how to register on the PLI website.
