2022 Ohio State Bar Association Law & Media Conference
Event Date: October 4, 2022
Event Time: 9:00 AM - 3:00 PM EDT

The OAB is pleased to partner with the Ohio State Bar Association for its 2022 Law & Media Conference!

This year, attendees have the option of attending the conference virtually via interactive webinar, or in-person at the Ohio Bar Headquarters in Columbus. As a benefit of membership, the OAB will cover the registration fee for the first 20 attendees from member stations to register for this event, a value of $40!

The annual one-day event brings together lawyers, journalists, broadcast professionals, and students to discuss the latest hot topics in media law. Among the questions addressed will be:

  • How is the media and their lawyers working to ensure accuracy at a social media pace and with great cultural and political division?
  • How has social media impacted public affairs lobbying?
  • Lawyers are held to highest professional standards, but what are the consequences when journalists breach their ethics?
  • And with defamation suits prominent in the national news, what’s going on in Ohio?
The conference will also explore the state of the media industry as well as the latest judicial and legislative updates to Ohio’s Sunshine Laws. Click here to see the full program agenda.
