Analysing the Future of Media Law

25 November 2020

14:00 - 16:35 GMT

Bird & Bird in conjunction with the Technology Media and Telecoms Law Institute of the Centre for Commercial Law Studies, QMUL, are pleased to present our second annual event analysing the future of Media Law. Our keynote speaker, Mr Justice Warby (LJ), will present an address considering his experience of key developments in the sector during a career which led him to the Queen's Bench Division of the High Court where he established the Media And Communications List, before his recent promotion to the Court of Appeal. 

Following Mr. Mark Warby's address, there will be a panel discussion, chaired by Robin Callender Smith, on the future regulation of the news media sector as the IPSO/ Royal Charter dispute is being replaced by questions arising from the shift from print to delivery via online platforms.

We hope you are able to join us, please register your place using the RSVP button below.
