Journalism's Digital Transition: Unique Legal Challenges and Opportunities
Friday April 9, 2010

Harvard Law School

The Berkman Center's Citizen Media Law Project and Cyberlaw Clinic are pleased to announce a one-day symposium and CLE program to celebrate the launch of the Online Media Legal Network (OMLN). OMLN is a legal referral service that connects qualifying online journalism ventures and digital media creators with lawyers willing to provide legal services on a pro bono or reduced-fee basis. It supports promising ventures and innovative thinkers in online and digital media by providing access to legal help that would otherwise be unavailable.


The program will bring together panels of academics, legal practitioners, and journalists. Topics include the legal issues arising from news aggregation and managing online communities, as well as the question of what comes next for journalism, and how the legal profession can assist (or hinder) journalism's digital transition.


Cost for the conference is $275 ($225 if registration is received before March 31), which includes all CLE/course materials and lunch.  A "sponsors dinner" will be held at the Harvard Faculty Club.  Cost for the dinner is $150.  A portion of the registration fee will go towards supporting the Citizen Media Law Project and the Online Media Legal Network.

Sponsors of the conference are entitled to a limited number of complimentary registrations to the conference and dinner. We also have reserved a limited number of free and reduced-fee registrations that will be made available to academics, students, and public interest attorneys. For information on becoming a sponsor or learning more about reduced-fee registration, please contact Kimberley Isbell at kisbell [at]
