LEXINGTON, Va. (AP) Disgraced ex-New York Times reporter Jayson Blair will be the featured speaker at a Virginia journalism ethics seminar.

Blair, the focus of a major news media scandal, will speak on "Lessons Learned" at Washington and Lee University's Journalism Ethics Institute on Nov. 6.

Blair resigned from The Times in 2003 after an investigation found he had plagiarized or fabricated major portions of articles he had written during four years with the newspaper.

A school news release says the 33-year-old Blair hasn't spoken publicly before about the events that led to his departure from The Times.

For the past two years, he has been working as a certified life coach for a mental-health practice in northern Virginia.
