  • Time: 11:00 pm
  • Location: William G. McGowan Theater, Washington, DC

Join us for a panel discussion that focuses on the inextricable link between the rule of law and the media, and  the nexus between a robust rule of law and a robust independent media, drawing on lessons from recent decades from the U.S. and abroad. Moderated by Homer Moyer, Founder and Chair of CEELI Institute, panelists include Andrea Mitchell, Chief Foreign Affairs Correspondent for NBC News, Jennifer Rubin, journalist and author of The Washington Post blog Right Turn, and Lee Levine, Senior Counsel at Ballard Spahr.

This program is the second in a six-part series of live events titled “Preserving a Free Society: A Series of Bipartisan Discussions on the Rule of Law—Its Critical Importance to Free Societies and How Best to Sustain and Defend It.”  Some programs in the series will take place at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars.

Presented in partnership with the International Bar Association, with generous support from the IBA Foundation.
