Calling all lawyers in the film, television, music, broadcasting, book publishing, and new media industries — our program dedicated to entertainment and media law is back! It looks different this year, with short, focussed sessions designed to fit your busy life. Choose between two streams — or bundle them and save — while you learn from your home or office. Topics curated for you explore the latest developments including a federal Broadcasting and Telecommunications Legislative Review, the lasting impact of the pandemic on entertainment and media law and practice, the Entertainment & Media Law: The Year(s) in Review. And if you're looking for an opportunity to connect and chat with presenters and your fellow attendees, we've got you covered there, too. This is a program you don't want to miss!
