Former "New York Times" Reporter Judith Miller to Present Koley Lecture at Creighton University School of Law
Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and bestselling author Judith Miller will present this year’s Koley Lecture at 3 p.m., Nov. 15, at the Creighton University School of Law.
A former investigative reporter for The New York Times, Miller ended her 30-year career with The New York Times in November 2005 after spending 85 days in jail to defend a reporter’s right to protect confidential sources (twice as long as any other American reporter has ever been confined for this cause). Since being released, she has been advocating the enactment of a Federal shield law to protect the relationship between reporters, their sources and the public’s right to know.
In 2002, Miller was part of a small team that won a Pulitzer Prize for ‘explanatory journalism’ for a January 2001 series on Osama Bin Laden and Al Qaeda. That same year, she won an Emmy for her work on a Nova/New York Times documentary based on articles for her book, Germs. She also was part of the Times team that won the prestigious DuPont award that year for a series of program on terrorism for PBS’s Frontline.
The Koley Lecture Series is named in honor of James L. Koley, a 1954 graduate of Creighton’s School of Law.
The lecture is free and open to the public. Reservations can be made by calling the Creighton School of Law at (402) 280-2872 or (800) 282-5835 option 4 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
