For more junior people, we offer a variety of entry level and limited experience sessions, which are open to all - bursaries are sometimes available via Screenskills.

ABBAS Media Law – Legal Workshop

Duty of Care and Contributors

Wednesday 29th September 2021
Via Zoom
5pm - 6.30pm (approx)

Following a lengthy consultation and review process, Ofcom finally updated the Ofcom Broadcasting Code earlier this year, to strengthen the ‘duty of care’ protections for contributors.

In this workshop, specialist TV Law Firm, Abbas Media Law, will summarise the key changes to the Code and explain how they will affect various stages of production including:

·       the casting and selection of contributors;

·       identifying and then managing contributor duty of care risks during filming;

·       responding to duty of care concerns after filming has ended and in the lead up to transmission; and

·       providing appropriate post- broadcast aftercare.

The workshop will also provide an overview of changes made to the “Standards” part of the Code.

This event is open to anyone but places are limited.  FREE for members of the PMA.  £25 for anyone else.  Payment in advance via Paypal.  RSVP by clicking the REGISTER for EVENT button or email
