BGD Attorney to Take Pro-Bono Trip to Educate Mongolians on Media Law
On Oct. 8, Daniel Byron will take his second trip from Indianapolis to Mongolia to continue his volunteer efforts to bring Mongolian media law into the 21st century. Byron will be working to educate justices of the Mongolian Supreme Court on important aspects of U.S. and international law that will expand free speech within the country.
Byron will be training journalists, attorneys and judges on implementing the new Freedom of Information law that up until now appears to have been largely ignored by Mongolian officials. Near the end of his stay, Byron will also be heavily involved in a two-day national media conference that will address all current media issues with the intent of developing a set of recommendations for improving the free flow of information and news between the government, its citizens and the media.
Byron is a senior partner in the Indianapolis office of Bingham Greenebaum Doll LLP and focuses his practice in media and First Amendment law and litigation. Bingham Greenebaum Doll LLP Co-Chairman Tobin McClamroch said of Dan:
“Dan has spent a career as one of the most successful litigators in the state of Indiana. Now he is making a fundamental difference in the way that developing countries govern themselves.”
