Careers in Copyright: A Panel Discussion and Networking Reception
The Washington, DC Chapter of the Copyright Society of the United States will be holding a copyright career panel and networking event, on September 18, 2014 from 6pm to 8:30 pm in the Faculty Conference Center of The George Washington University Law School. A career in copyright law provides opportunities to practice in a number of industries that have become integral to our lives. Copyright attorneys work in areas such as film, television, music, media, and in government. Many attorneys and students who wish to practice in these areas want to know two things: what are my options and how do I get there? Please join us for a panel discussion with a diverse and distinguished group in the public and private sectors to answer those very questions. A reception with light snacks and refreshments will follow.
Date: Thursday, September 18
Time: 6:00 pm – 8:30 pm
Location: Faculty Conference Center – Burns 505, The George Washington University Law School, 716 20th Street, NW
