The Online Media Legal Network ("OMLN") was created at the end of 2009 by David Ardia, Kim Isbell, and Helen Fu as part of the Citizen Media Law Project, in order to respond to the lack of experienced legal advice available to independent news organizations, online content creators, and solo digital journalists. As the OMLN nears the end of its second year, it has helped over 160 clients with more than 330 separate legal matters, and has more than 225 firms, clinics and individual attorneys in its roster with coverage in all 50 U.S. states. At this event, timed to celebrate the OMLN's second anniversary, the staff of the OMLN will discuss the history and growth of the project, the accumulated data regarding the nature and geographic distribution of clients and legal issues that have come to the OMLN, and the OMLN's efforts to meet those needs. They will also discuss potential future uses of the OMLN in connection with research and tracking of legal trends.
