    There are four Plenary sessions: “The Right to Privacy v. The First Amendment: A Current Look at Online Legal Protections,” moderated by Laura Prather of Haynes and Boone; “Treatment of Journalists: Friends, Enemies and the Erosion of Press Freedoms,” moderated by Natalie Spears of Dentons; “Fifty Years after Brandenburg v. Ohio,” moderated by Tom Leatherbury of Vinson & Elkins; and the “breaking news” panel discussing legal and ethical issues of the practice called “catch and kill” whereby a publisher secures exclusive rights to a person’s story and then declines to publish it, moderated by Len Niehoff of Honigman Miller. To provide more learning opportunities, we have added a fourth round of workshops so folks can have another opportunity to discuss new developments in the various practice areas that comprise Communications Law. There also are additional sessions scheduled for Hot Issues workshops on Social Media Law, Entertainment Law and Ethics. We have divided the Data Privacy and Internet Law session into two separate workshops, with two sessions offered for each. As detailed in this brochure, the other Hot Issues workshops are: Newsgathering and Access; Advertising and Promotions, Anti- SLAPP and Other Legislation; International and Cross-Border Vetting; Libel and Privacy; Reporter’s Privilege and Social Media. These workshops are open conversations to discuss, debate and learn the latest in key practice areas.

    SCHOLARSHIPS: A limited number of scholarships to defray tuition expenses are available for this program. For attorneys who qualify will receive a 50% reduction in the course fee(s). This does not include any reduction in meals, lodging, or travel costs associated with the course. To request an application or receive additional information, please contact Bernadette Steele at Bernadette.Steele@americanbar.org. Scholarship applications must be received by the ABA no later than December 8, 2018 prior to the program presentation.

    CLE CREDIT: The ABA directly applies for and ordinarily receives CLE credit for ABA programs in AK, AL, AR, AZ, CA, CO, CT, DE, GA, GU, HI, IA, IL, IN, KS, KY, LA, ME, MN, MS, MO, MP, MT, NH, NJ, NM, NV, NY, NC, ND, OH, OK, OR, PA, SC, TN, TX, UT, VT, VA, VI, WA, WI, and WV. These states sometimes do not approve a program for credit before the program occurs. This course is expected to qualify for 15.00 CLE credit hours (including 1.0 ethics hours) in 60-minute states, and 18.00 credit (including 1.2 ethics hours) in 50-minute states. This transitional program is approved for both newly admitted and experienced attorneys in NY.
