PLI’s Communications Law in the Digital Age 2017
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.
Who Should Attend: Firm attorneys, in-house counsel and other professionals who practice in the fields of media and telecommunications, corporate compliance, privacy, and First Amendment law.
Date: November 9-10, 2017
Paul Hastings Sherrese Smith, Partner in Paul Hastings’ Corporate Department, will be participating in this program.
