Additional Information

The Media, Internet and Data Protection Bar Association (MIDBA), supported by the Bar of Ireland, is a specialist association for barristers who practice in, or have an interest in, those areas of law. MIDBA seeks to advance knowledge in these dynamic and fast-developing areas of law. Given the seismic changes in the media landscape in recent years, and with many of the largest technology companies having their European headquarters located in Ireland, it is essential that law practitioners are kept up to date on developments in these complex and fast-moving areas of law.
