Media Law and Policy in the Digital Age: Global Challenges and Opportunities
Rapid changes in communication technology and interaction have challenged regulators and courts bound by rules and precedents from a vanishing era. However, the changes also offer opportunities to rethink and reshape the media regulatory framework in a more logical, holistic manner.
To examine these issues, The Media School at Indiana University will host a symposium called, “Media Law and Policy in the Digital Age: Global Challenges and Opportunities.” The one-day event will feature presentations of research by IU graduate and undergraduate students from various fields. Papers will be blind-reviewed, and there will be awards for the top three papers in each of two categories: undergraduate student and graduate student.
The symposium is sponsored by the Center for International Media Law and Policy Studies and the Barbara Restle Press Law Project.
Keynote speaker: David Greene
Luncheon will be served, and David Greene, senior staff attorney and civil liberties director of the Electronic Frontier Foundation, will be the luncheon speaker.
Greene has extensive experience litigating First Amendment cases in both state and federal courts.
He is also an adjunct professor who teaches First Amendment and media law at the University of San Francisco School of Law and a journalism instructor at San Francisco State University.
Before the Electronic Frontier Foundation, Greene spent 12 years at the First Amendment Project as an executive director and lead staff counsel.
He graduated from Duke University School of Law in 1991.
