Freedom of Information Law Workshop

January 27 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm


Kick your reporting into high gear in 2022 with this primer and Q&A on Freedom of Information laws at state and federal level.

To jumpstart your 2022 reporting, get your Freedom of Information knowledge honed and questions answered in the Deadline Club’s FOI Law Workshop with longtime media lawyer Matthew Leish. Join us Thursday, January 27, 6 to 7:30 p.m. ET, via Zoom. RSVP via the button below.

Get clarity on the differences between New York State’s Freedom of Information Law (FOIL) and the federal Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). Leish, a partner at Miller Korzenik Sommers Rayman LLP, has extensive appearance with filings at both the state and federal level. He will be able to answer questions on framing your request, the timing rules, appealing a FOI officer’s decision, and when tougher legal tactics are necessary to gain access to information the public deserves to know.
