34th Annual Silha Lecture

In Defense of Public Trials: Access to Court Proceedings in the Internet Age

Attorney Kelli L. Sager, best known for her representation of the media in the access issues that arose during the O.J. Simpson trial, will address the importance of expanding – rather than retracting – access rights in the digital age when she delivers the 34th annual Silha Lecture titled, “In Defense of Public Trials: Access to Court Proceedings in the Internet Age.”

Sager represents media and entertainment companies, as well as journalists, broadcasters, filmmakers, newspapers, Web publishers, and authors. Among other accolades, Chambers USA has ranked Sager for 10 consecutive years in its top tier of media attorneys in the country, and she has been one of Lawdragon’s 500 Leading Lawyers in America since 2005. She is regularly included in the Los Angeles Daily Journal’s list of Top 100 Lawyers, Top Intellectual Property Litigators, and Top Women Litigators.
