Course detail: Media and the Law Annual Seminar

Each year, the University of Kansas School of Law and the Kansas City Metropolitan Bar Association's Media Law Committee sponsor the Media and the Law Seminar in Kansas City to facilitate national dialogue about the latest legal issues and developments in media, law, and technology. Seminar topics are wide ranging. For example, they have included the impact of "fake news" on democracy, the use of encryption to protect anonymous speech online, and procedures for dealing with alleged copyright infringement by users of YouTube and other similar Internet sites. For lawyers who attend, the seminar is an opportunity to identify and assess laws and court rulings that affect expressive freedom and to examine professional standards and practices for effective First Amendment advocacy. The seminar also is open to non-lawyers, including students and teachers. For them, the seminar is an opportunity to enrich their understanding of government actions and technological developments that may impede or advance citizens' exercise of their First Amendment rights.
