Posted: Updated:

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

Blair will speak on "Lessons Learned" Nov. 6 at Washington and Lee University's Journalism Ethics Institute.

He 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.

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