The Publications Officer is a new position in the Media Law Committee which operates within the Intellectual Property, Communications and Technology Section.
The Committee’s work focuses on traditional media, but its members also deal with online communications and e-commerce issues, regularly discussing new directions in media technology.
The Committee brings together several hundred of the most respected media law practitioners from around the world.
Agnieszka’s responsibilities will include the coordination of publications and the organisation of media events. Her term of office will be two years.
“I am delighted to have the opportunity to actively engage and collaborate in the activities of the Media Law Committee, and am sure that my perfect understanding of the Polish, Central and Eastern European media markets will prove to be a major asset” – stressed Agnieszka Chrzanowska.

The new role is a great honour and a recognition of Agnieszka Chrzanowska’s professional achievements. It will certainly lead to a strengthening of the Media Sector Practice she heads, and will directly impact the quality and quantity of international contacts, in line with the IBA’s mission of initiating and implementing activities beyond the national framework, promoting the need for cross-border dialogue and cooperation.
Agnieszka has nearly a decade of experience in media law. She is a recognised expert in press law, in particular the freedom of the press, protection of personal interests, and image and brand protection, and is the author of numerous publications on these topics.
Agnieszka represents many notable clients, including Ringier Axel Springer Polska (owner of brands such as Forbes, Business Insider, Newsweek Polska and Onet), one of the largest publishing houses in Poland.
Over the years, she has successfully represented clients in proceedings before the Polish Supreme Court, conducting precedent-setting cases that have led to changes in case law and expanded the limits of freedom of speech, particularly in proceedings involving public figures. She has also represented Polish journalists before the European Court of Human Rights.
