Today is the deadline to apply to be a Jennings Fellow; a program (partially funded by Knight) meant for journalists to explore constitutional issues in their work.
Fellows attend a few days of workshops with leading constitutional scholars and lawyers (the 2009 faculty includes Kenneth Starr, Dean, Pepperdine University School of Law and John Yoo, Professor of Law, University of California at Berkley).
Harold Jackson of the Philadelphia Inquirer is a Jennings Fellow from the program's first year, and he tells us more about the program below:
