Stanford Law School's Constitutional Law Center plans to co-host an International American Press Association student conference in Spring 2012. Participants will include students from Stanford, American University, and a number of Latin American schools. The conference will educate future U.S. and Latin American lawyers about the legal and political challenges that prevent the press from providing reliable and complete coverage of public affairs, and the various ways to address those challenges through domestic and international legal systems. Of particular relevance to the Hewlett Foundation, there will be a panel discussing the variety of freedom of information regimes across the hemisphere, and how to develop legal and public policies that maximize government transparency. Finally, the conference will coincide with when the Commission on Human Rights is sitting in Washington DC so the students can observe the Commission at work.
