The First Amendment Clinic

More from this show

The First Amendment Clinic, led by law students working pro bono, has won a significant records case against the Arizona Department of Economic Security at the Arizona Supreme Court.

The Court decided that journalists can engage in research that would allow them to see if a state health agency is protecting vulnerable adults under its care. Students in the clinic represented journalist Amy Silverman of KJZZ and the Arizona Daily Star.

It is an important win for all journalists in the state and allows for public agencies to be held accountable for their work. The case will now return to the trial court to apply the new test and consider ADES’ objections.

In the studio is Gregg Leslie, the Executive Director of the First Amendment Clinic at the Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law and Amy Silverman a Journalist to discuss the clinic.
