St. John’s Law Co-Hosts Program on International Issues in New Media

Monday, June 16, 2014

Putting new media in its global context was the topic of conversation at “Cross-Border and International Aspects of New Media,” a recent panel program and networking event co-hosted by the ISDE/St. John’s LL.M. in International and Comparative Sports Law (ICSL) and the Sports Lawyers Association

Held at the New York offices of Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP & Affiliates, the event was well-attended by law students from several schools, alumni and incoming students of St. John’s ICSL program, and practitioners from law firms, leagues, and media companies. Anthony J. Dryer, a Skadden partner and commercial litigator concentrating on intellectual property and sports litigation, moderated the panel of experts that included:

  • Anil George, VP & Senior Intellectual Property Counsel, NBA Properties, Inc.
  • Sarah Horvitz, Senior Counsel, MLB Advanced Media
  • Daniel A. Malin, Counsel, NFL
  • Guiselle Torres, Legal Counsel, MLS

Itziar Murillo, Associate Director of the ICSL program, organized the event, which was also attended by the program’s Deputy Director, Jeff Fannell ’96, and Director, Ettie Ward. “We prepare our students to capably deal with emerging issues in sports law," Professor Ward said. "One way we accomplish this is by bringing them together with leaders in the field. This panel program, which included counsel from every major U.S. sports league, was representative of this essential engagement. And co-sponsorship with the Sports Lawyers Association gave us a broader platform to showcase the unique offerings of our LL.M. in International and Comparative Sports law.”
