The series of videos, which are all more than an hour in length, include deep conversations between lawyers and journalists, about how reporters can get present a clearer picture of criminal justice to their readers.

The first video features a discussion about covering criminal justice policy, with NACDL Executive Director Norman L. Reimer, Wall Street Journal criminal justice reporter Gary Fields and National Public Radio correspondent Carrie Johnson.

In the second video, New York criminal trial lawyer Susan J. Walsh and Associated Press reporter Linda Deutsch — co-author of “Covering the Courts: An Associated Press Manual for Reporters” — discuss coverage of criminal trials.

The third video features NACDL Director of Public Affairs & Communications Ivan J. Dominguez, Adam Liptak, Supreme Court correspondent for The New York Times and David Savage, the Supreme Court correspondent for the Los Angeles Times and the Chicago Tribune, discussing coverage of appellate decisions.
