Butzel Long attorney Robin Luce Herrmann to moderate AWC and DPC panel program on March 24

Butzel Long attorney and shareholder Robin Luce Herrmann is a speaker in demand. She will moderate a panel program presented by the Association of Women in Communications (AWC) and the Detroit Press Club (DPC) on March 24, 2016 at the Automotive Industry Action Group (AIAG) in Southfield.

The program is titled, “Investigative Journalism in the Age of Buzzfeed.” Speakers will discuss the challenges they face to provide a public service, bringing the real stories in a time when citizen journalism is pervasive and the facts can be elusive. Featured panelists include:

· Tresa Baldas, federal courts reporter, Detroit Free Press;

· Chastity Pratt, urban affairs reporter, Bridge Magazine;

· Chad Livengood, political reporter; The Detroit News

Herrmann, a Practice Department Chair for one of Butzel Long’s two Business Litigation Groups, concentrates her practice in the areas of media law, particularly defamation and access issues; commercial litigation, including Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO); non-competes and trade secrets; and civil rights.

She previously taught Law of the Press in the Journalism Department at Oakland University. Herrmann has been a guest speaker on Law of the Press at Wayne State University, Central Michigan University, and Oakland University.

Herrmann earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Michigan in 1984 and a Juris Doctor from the Detroit College of Law in 1993.
