Navigating Liability and Legal Issues As a Freelance Writer

Event Date: 
November 18, 2020

If you’re a freelancer, you’ve probably signed a contract at one point or another with an indemnity clause, which hints at possible legal ramifications of the work that you’re doing. What happens if a source decides to sue you for libel? Do you need liability insurance? If you’re likely working with corporate clients that require liability insurance, anticipate diving into an investigative story, or just straight-up fear getting sued as a freelancer, this webinar is for you.

Issues around liability can feel incredibly confusing for freelance writers, so we’re bringing in two experts to talk about when (and why) you might want media liability insurance, and how to protect yourself in a contract.

The Writers' Co-op is hosting a webinar, 3:00-4:00 p.m. EST on Nov 18, 2020, on navigating liability & legal issues as a freelancer. We'll be joined by Umair Kazi of The Author's Guild and media attorney Carolyn Schurr Levin.
