Category: Conventions and Panels

Hello readers! Today I have some exciting content updates for you. Last April, the second annual Chicago Video Game Law Summit was held at the Chicago Bar Association in Chicago, Illinois. CVGLS 2016 featured a new lineup of high quality panels made up of lawyers, game developers, and industry professionals. Additionally, the Summit offered  a Game Showcase to highlight independent games in development in Chicago, and an assembly of Chicago based video game organizations. Attendees had the chance to watch academic panels on a variety of topics, play the latest games out of Chicago, and interact directly with the movers and shakers of the Chicago game scene.

In case you missed it, or would like to relive it, I am very happy to announce that the video footage of CVGLS 2016 is now available online! You can access it on the CVGLS YouTube Channel, or right here at Loading Law!
