Stopping The Spread Of Misinformation: First Amendment Considerations From Classroom To Courtroom

Stopping The Spread Of Misinformation: First Amendment Considerations From Classroom To Courtroom

StoppingTheSpreadOfMisinformation_675

The rapid spread of misinformation harmful to society is a dangerous consequence of freedom of expression in our digital age. The saying goes that, “a lie can travel halfway around the world while the truth is still putting on its shoes.” In this webinar, we will take on the limits of the First Amendment, while also examining how education and litigation can be effective tools to identify and stem the tide.

This FREE 3-hour informational program is co-sponsored by the New York State Bar Association's Committee on Law, Youth and Citizenship, Committee on Media Law, and Task Force on Free Expression in the Digital Age.
