Public Access Seminar

Indiana Attorney General Greg Zoeller strives for an accountable, transparent and candid goverment. Over the past two years he has worked with the Public Access Counselor's Office, the Hoosier State Press Association and local media to provide training seminars with current public access laws for public officials, educators, law enforcement and most importantly - members of the public.

The training is presented by a panel of subject matter experts who discuss practical tips to assist with access to public records, ways to ensure compliance, pitfalls to avoid, non-compliance, and legislation on Indiana's Access to Public Records Act and Open Door Law. The goal of the program is to support those responsible for upholding our state's transparency laws and to educate citizens of their rights under these laws.

The live seminar that was conducted across the state in 18 different locations is now available online. The video was shot at the session held June 19, 2012, at the Indianapolis Star. It has been edited into two separate clips;
