Hurley-Sloan Symposium

April 25 @ 8:30 am - 5:00 pm

The Missouri-Hurley and Price Sloan Symposium, “Free Speech, Free Press or Free for All? Social Media and the First Amendment,” will feature journalists, social media experts and legal scholars exploring the following questions: Is the First Amendment still relevant in the age of social media? How can we be sure that what we’re reading and watching is true? What can social media platforms do to curtail the spread of misinformation and lies? How can journalists make the best use of social media to gain audience and enrich their reporting while also protecting themselves from harassment?

This event is at the National Press Club in Washington, DC. More details to come.
