I write a blog that provides news and commentary on events in my community. Can I apply for ENMC to blog from a trial in my local courthouse?

Yes. Amendments to Chapter 25 allow "any person who regularly gathers, prepares, photographs, records, writes, edits, reports, or publishes news or information about matters of public interest in any medium" to apply for ENMC. However, you must apply through the regional coordinator, like any other member of the news media, and "agree to comply with all court rules." Familiarize yourself with the ENMC rules, including the prohibition on coverage of jurors and conferences between attorneys and their clients, and the importance of being discreet and non-distracting in your work.
