Week of Sept. 3, 2012

We've recently redesigned and updated The Law & You: A Legal Handbook For Ohio Consumers and Journalists, a comprehensive legal information resource for the media consumers. The handbook includes new resources to help you, the working reporter and news executive, as you report and editorialize on legal issues. Some of the topics include gaining access to public meetings and documents, and how new and existing laws apply to Internet
journalism. A link to the online version of the handbook is included in this week's news tips.
