The Wake Forest Law Review will host its Fall 2013 Symposium, “Internet Privacy Regulation,” at 9 a.m. on Friday, Oct. 25,  in the Worrell Professional Center.  The symposium will delve deeply into the topic of privacy and the Internet.  Participants will examine how social media has affected (and effected) legal norms about identity, group formation, governmental regulation, intimacy, secrecy, and zones of privacy.

The event is free and open to the public.

Contributions will arc in multiple directions, but the symposium’s nexus will be a focus on regulatory responses to privacy challenges posed by the Internet’s increasing centrality to our everyday lives.  Participants will discuss and write about issues like copyright, defamation, discrimination, hate speech, child pornography, law enforcement, and jurisdiction.

The Wake Forest Law Review has received approval from the North Carolina Bar Association to offer 6.5 hours CLE credit to attorneys who attend our symposium.  We are confident that this symposium will be informative and benefit the North Carolina legal community.
