Communications, Entertainment & Technology Law Committee

The Communications, Entertainment & Technology Law (CET) Committee is a forum for lawyers and law students to share their interest in the laws relating to the media, entertainment, intellectual property and technology sectors.

The CET Committee provides opportunities to discuss cases, legislative developments, law reform and industry news, as well as an excellent forum for professional networking and knowledge sharing.

Our membership is diverse and includes private practitioners, corporate counsel, government officers and law students. Many of the CET Committee's long-standing active members have experience that dreams are made of, so there are plenty of opportunities to develop your skills and careers.

We have one of the largest active memberships of NSW Young Lawyers committees, with 800 members (and counting!). In addition to monthly meetings, held on the third Monday of each month (often attended by over 30-40 members), the CET Committee regularly organises topical seminars, guest speakers, social and networking events, submissions on policy and law reform and publish various publications.

Many of us have combined legal and industry experience. Our areas of priority include regulation of content, electronic commerce, the entertainment and media industries, technology for lawyers, intellectual property and communication.

We have three Special Interest Groups that provide monthly reports at our meetings and a summary of those updates if circulated to all members. The Special Interest Groups are:

  • Communications & Marketing Law
  • Entertainment Law
  • Technology Law
  • However, we encourage knowledge-sharing outside of meetings as well, and have an active email group, Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn Page.

The Communications, Entertainment & Technology Law Committee (CET) aims to serve the interests of lawyers, law students and other members of the community concerned with areas of law relating to:

  • intellectual property
  • advertising and the media consumer protection
  • entertainment
  • information and communication technology (including technology affecting legal practice)
  • confidential information and privacy

CET members achieve this aim through regular discussion about the law (including court decisions, legislation, industry codes, guidelines, and codes and standards of practice), networking, and educational and policy review activities, consistent with the NSW Young Lawyers’ Constitution.

As innovation inevitably challenges custom, CET promotes forward thinking, particularly about the shape of the law and the legal profession as a whole.
