The Legal Challenges of Social Media

06/07/2017

Social media enables instant access to individual self-expression and the sharing of information. Social media issues are boundless, permeating distinct legal disciplines. The law has struggled to adapt and for good reason: how does the law regulate this medium over the public/private law divide?

This event will facilitate a discussion of this critical issue and others included in a new book: The Legal Challenges of Social Media (edited by David Mangan and Lorna E Gillies, Edward Elgar, 2017), foreword by Sir Edward Garnier QC. The book engages with the legal implications of social media from public and private law perspectives and outlines how the law, in various legal sub-disciplines and with varying success, has endeavoured to adapt existing tools to social media.

Further information on the event can be found here.
