Due to the current circumstances in the context of the Covid 19 pandemic, the Annual Conference on European Media unfortunately cannot take place in Brussels as usual. Nevertheless, the Institute of European Media Law (EMR) and the Academy of European Law (ERA) Trier do not want to deprive you of an update on topics relevant to media law at EU level this year either.
EMR and ERA therefore cordially invite you to participate in the online seminar

on 28 May 2020, 09:30 – 13:00 CEST
