December 10, 2019-- Ithaca, NY --  Twenty-eight Ithaca College students enrolled in a journalism law course will debrief their semester experience in making Freedom of Information (FOI) requests while analyzing a housing contamination case. The debrief will transpire on Thursday, December 19, 2019 in Williams Hall, Room 323 on the Ithaca College campus beginning at 8:15 a.m., concluding at 10:00 a.m. The event is free and open to the public. 

The legal analysis for the contamination case involved researching the law, performing investigative work and making public requests for information (FOI).
