Jill Basinger selected as panel speaker for the American Bar Association Forum on the Entertainment and Sports Industries during their annual meeting on October 10, 2014 at the Ritz-Carlton Marina del Rey, Marina del Rey, California.
The mission of this Forum is to educate attorneys about the legal issues that pertain to practices in the entertainment, arts and sports industries, and to foster excellence in the practice of law in these fields. The forum accomplishes this through the work of its twelve divisions: Arts & Museums; Digital Media and New Technologies; Electronic Gaming; International; Licensing, Merchandising and Branding; Literary Publishing; Litigation; Motion Pictures, Television, Cable, and Radio; Music and Personal Appearances; Sports; Theater and Performing Arts; and Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts. The Forum presents regional day-long and multi-day seminars annually in Miami, Nashville, Silicon Valley, and San Francisco as well as regular webinars as part of its position as an on-going continuing education resource for its almost 4,000 members. In addition, the Forum continues to build international relationships with its colleagues abroad and looks forward to further international collaboration and to further developing business and professional relationships with practitioners in the U.K. and other countries.
