With Oscar buzz building through the month of February, you may be catching up on movie viewing. Whether you’ve seen it recently or saw it at the end of last year, if you appreciated Spotlight, which tells the story of how the Boston Globe uncovered the child molestation scandal and cover-up in the local Catholic Archdiocese, you will want to listen to the recording of the panel about the film that we and the HLS Dean of Students office hosted in November.
We had a great group of panelists who had a fascinating and often moving conversation about the film and the events that inspired it, and we’re happy to make available an audio recording of the event. You can also read more about it at Harvard Law Today.
Our panelists included:
Josh Singer, screenwriter (HLS ’01)
Mitchell Garabedian, Law Offices of Mitchell Garabedian
Lawrence Lessig, Roy L. Furman Professor of Law, Harvard Law School
Jeannie Suk, Professor of Law, Harvard Law School
Jonathan Zittrain, George Bemis Professor of International Law, Harvard Law School
We also had two surprise guests in the audience who added additional insights to the discussion: Michael Rezendes and Ben Bradlee Jr., who were both portrayed in the film.
