NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) - First Amendment lawyer David Schulz has been named co-director of Yale Law School’s Media Freedom and Information Access Clinic.

The school said Wednesday that hiring Schulz for the full-time position will enable the clinic to pursue cases more aggressively with the goal of protecting the rights of investigative reporters.

Schulz has supervised students in the MFIA Clinic since it opened in 2009 while working in New York for a law firm that represents media outlets on issues including defamation and First Amendment matters. He has represented journalists and news organizations for more than three decades.

The school says the appointment takes effect in July and was made possible through support from the Stanton Foundation and the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation.
