Information on the ABA Forum on Communications Law: Feb. 2-4, 2023

From Josh Moore, Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press


Please consider attending the Forum's in-person conference for February 2-4, 2023, in New Orleans at the JW Marriott in the French Quarter.

A dedicated team is busy planning the details, and will be providing outstanding plenary sessions and workshops.

We will be offering the Media Advocacy Program, and the finalists of our Diversity Moot Court program will be arguing before an all-star panel of judges.  In addition, we will be offering other educational programs, as well as the opportunity for in-house counsel, Young Lawyers, law professors/First Amendment clinicians and Women In Communications Law members to discuss issues of interest.

Attendees will be able to visit with old friends and make new ones.  In-house lawyers will benefit from a reduced registration fee.  We are trying to get the word out early so you will build this conference into your 2023 planning.

Our Entertainment Committee (which includes Ashley Heilprin, Scott Sternberg, Mary Ellen Roy and Michael Lambert; Honorary Chair is Barbara Wall) will ensure great venues.  We also intend to have a return to tennis, so you expert players will have the opportunity to show off your skills.

It goes without saying that New Orleans has a lot to offer!  If you choose to stay over until Sunday, Feb 5 (and I’d encourage it), you will have the opportunity to watch (or participate in) the Krewe du Vieux parade.  Some say this parade celebrates First Amendment values more than any other.

We look forward to seeing you.  Inquiries/offers to assist to  Thanks.
