Social Media and the Law

Social Media and the Law provides an important context for lawyers and law students developing a proactive strategy for individuals and industries addressing new media. Individuals increasingly rely on social media for news, shopping, and community but have little control over their content or power to stop unauthorized use. Companies need the engagement with their customers but fear loss of good will or trade secrets from employee turnover; liability for content posted by employees and customers; and concerns over data privacy and security. By integrating these topics into a single course, students will be prepared to solve their client's social media questions and plan ahead for the challenges created by new media and new technology.
