The University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law's Journal of Business & Technology Law is sponsoring a symposium titled, "Social Media and the Law: An Exploratory Look into the Legal Effects of Online Interconnectedness." The Symposium is also being sponsored in part by the Intellectual Property Law Program; the Entertainment, Arts, and Sports Law Association (EASL); the Maryland Intellectual Property Student Association (MIPSA); and the University of Maryland Association of Legislative Law (UMALL). The event will be open to the general public.
The panel discussions will be held in the Ceremonial Moot Court Room, and a keynote lunch will be provided in the Krongard Board Room. The symposium will have three segments: a morning panel, a keynote lunch, and an afternoon panel. Each panel will have an introduction speaker, who will also act as moderator for the remainder of the discussion. Each panelist will provide a 10-15 minute presentation, and there will be time reserved for question and answer.
Speakers will present on a range of topics, including: the constitutionality of student athlete social media policies; the relationship between social media interfaces and copyright law; and how social media laws are developing with respect to employment law, contracts, and privacy matters. Our speakers include private practitioners, policy activists, and professors of law and communications.We are proud to present our currently committed speakers:
