Publication date: May 27, 2024

On 6 May 2024, KIEŁTYKA GŁADKOWSKI lawyers took part in Law Day 2024. The event took place at the ArentFox Schiff Law Firm in Washington D.C.

The program began with a beautiful performance by the French Choir from Washington D.C., with songs in English and French. Next, Betsy Cavendish, General Counsel at the Executive Office of the Mayor of the District of Columbia, presented a proclamation commemorating Law Day organized by the ILS Section of the American Bar Association. Kiełtyka Gładkowski’s lawyers had the honour to present a watercolor created as part of the Istart1 program as a gift and Polish contribution to the Mayor Office.

Furthermore, Attorney Peter Lichtenbaum summarized Covington & Burling’s new pro bono initiative with the Clooney Foundation for Justice on Media Freedom. The initiative concerns real actions that threaten journalism and freedom of speech and freedom of the media.

This was followed by a fantastic panel discussion on media law and the upcoming elections with ArentFox Schiff Partner Craig Engle, General Counsel and Chief Operating Officer Derek Khanna, and CNN Senior Reporter Katelyn Polantz.

Co-Chair of the United Nations and International Organizations Committee, Mandalena Prelashi, recited Emily Dickinson’s poem “Hope.”

Kiełtyka Gładkowski’s lawyers would like to thank ILS ABA for the opportunity to take part in this great event.
