Commemorating the 100th Birthday of alumnus and former Supreme Court Justice Lewis Powell participants spoke at a symposium titled “The Clash Between the First Amendment and National Security in Times of War.” Legal scholars and journalists spoke about Justice Powell’s concurrence in Branzburg v. Hayes and its lasting impact on the issue of reportorial privilege. Justice Powell’s opinion eschewed all-or-nothing alternatives, and as was evidenced during the Valerie Plame leak investigation. They talked about how it continued to define the relationship between a journalist and his or her source, and why it continued to be one of the most contested issues in modern mass media law. They also responded to questions from the audience. close
