Tulane Law School is hosting California alumni for a reception and discussion about free speech issues March 8 at the Sony Pictures Studios. 

The event, hosted by Tulane Law alumnus Jeff Frost (L ’89), executive vice president for U.S. business affairs at Sony Pictures Television, is set for 6-8 p.m. at Sony’s complex in Culver City, California. 

(Please send RSVPs, which are required for studio security, to akancher@tulane.edu by March 7.)


Tulane Law Professor Amy Gajda

Professor Amy Gajda will speak briefly on emerging developments in law and privacy affecting the entertainment business, drawing on her book The First Amendment Bubble, How Privacy and Paparazzi Threaten a Free Press.

In the book, published by Harvard University Press, Gajda explores judicial oversight of journalists’ news judgment. She argues that new-media outlets that push the envelope of traditional privacy are also pushing the law in directions that threaten free-speech rights. 

Her work has generated discussion in both legal and journalism circles and was featured in a program at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia and at New England Law Review’s Spring 2016 Symposium. Gajda also is set to discuss her book at the Beverly Hills Bar Association on March 7. 

Its themes are especially current at a time when libel laws have become a talking point in the U.S. presidential race and a film about investigatory journalism won the 2016 Academy Award for Best Picture.

More than 400 Tulane Law graduates live and work in the Los Angeles area, many of them in the entertainment industry. The March 8 event is the latest effort to strengthen Tulane Law’s ties to its West Coast alumni. In the fall, a contingent of Tulane Law students spent a week in Los Angeles, meeting with Tulane alumni and other industry representatives to get an insider’s look at intellectual property issues affecting various aspects of the business.
