Mizzou Law Dean Lyrissa Lidsky is due to speak at the Media Freedom and Information Access Clinic symposium Access & Accountability 2021: Time to Seize the Day? at Yale University on Oct. 1. Dean Lidsky will participate in a panel titled “Defamation as an Accountability Tool.”
This panel will: “explore the extent to which the problem of disinformation is exacerbated in the age of social media by First Amendment doctrine that relies primarily on counter-speech as the cure for false speech, whether libel litigation provides a useful tool for addressing political disinformation, and other steps that might help restore some common agreement on the relevant facts.”
