Media and communications law is continuing to evolve in response to new challenges and the rise of digital and social media. The areas of First Amendment, privacy, intellectual property, newsgathering and reporter’s privilege law are changing rapidly. The Trump administration’s initiatives in these and other areas are also affecting  advice to clients.  The expert faculty of law firm practitioners, in-house counsel, government officials, and academics will address these issues. Unlike any other program, Communications Law in the Digital Age 2017 is a comprehensive, “one-stop shop,” providing the legal, strategic and practical knowledge needed to keep apace in these areas of law. This program is designed for firm attorneys, in-house counsel and other professionals who practice in the fields of media and telecommunications, corporate compliance, privacy, and First Amendment law.

Topics Include 

  • The latest on the FCC’s regulation of the communications sector
  • New First Amendment developments
  • U.S. and European legislative, judicial and regulatory developments on data protection and privacy
  • Updates on reporter’s privilege and newsgathering liability
  • Important recent intellectual property decisions affecting the media
  • Current issues in right of publicity law
