The Fact-checkers Legal Support Initiative (FLSI) is a collaboration between three leading media law and journalism organisations, brought together to support fact-checkers around the world: Media Defence, The International Fact-Checking Network and the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press. FLSI provides legal defence for fact-checkers, connecting them with pro bono lawyers, helping to pay legal fees where pro bono support isn’t available, and providing technical legal assistance to pro bono lawyers.
