Join the  Rory Peck Trust (RPT) and the European Centre for Press and Media Freedom (ECPMF) to explore the main legal risks & SLAPPs (Strategic Lawsuits Against Public Participation) that journalists should be aware of while reporting on the ground.

When: Thursday 15 July 2021, 18:00 (CEST) / 17:00 (BST) 
Where: Online, Register here 

An expert panel will outline the help that is available when things go wrong and where to turn if you need assistance with legal fees or specialist legal advice. They will also give an overview of SLAPPs and how these damaging lawsuits suppress free speech by targeting those who speak out on corruption and illegal activity, as well as what needs to be done in the future so that defamation and other legislation cannot be used against journalists.
