Upcoming Media Law in the Digital Age Conference in Atlanta

Wednesday, October 5th, 2011

Logo for Media Law in the Digital AgeKennesaw State University’s Center for Sustainable Journalism and the Citizen Media Law Project of Harvard University’s Berkman Center are putting on a one-day conference in Atlanta on October 22, 2011 called Media Law in the Digital Age.

It looks like an excellent conference. They’ve got some great panelists that I’d love to see, including:

  • Lucy Dalglish, executive director of the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press
  • Eric P. Robinson, blogger-proprietor of our cross-continent rival blog, Blog Law Online, and deputy director of the Reynolds Center at my hometown college, the University of Nevada, Reno
  • Carlos Miller, blogger-proprietor of the Photography is Not a Crime blog, and double-arrestee for taking pictures of police officers
  • Victor Hernandez, director of domestic newsgathering for CNN’s U.S. operations
  • David McCraw, in-house counsel for the New York Times in charge of newsroom legal affairs and FOIA litigation

I wish I could go myself. Leonard Witt, j-school prof at Kennesaw State and exec director of the Center for Sustainable Journalism, passed along to me a promo code you can use to get a 15% discount if you register for the conference: MLDA11

I feel very special handing out discount codes. Huh? What’s that? No, I don’t have any discount codes for Christian Louboutin shoes. Gosh, my blog’s not that exciting.
