Mr. Dyk, attorney and legal scholar, discussed legal ethics in the use of television in the courtroom. Mr. Dyk advocated the use of electronic media to record courtroom proceedings, saying the right of access of the electronic media is more of a policy issue than a legal issue.

Mr. Dyk discussed recent court rulings concerning television coverage of court proceedings, and the resulting changes in the management and proceedings of court cases. close
