Conference on Cyberharassment at New York Law School

Many members of the Prawfs community might find this interesting:

This weekend, Oct 3-4, I am hosting the First Annual Tyler Clementi Internet Safety Conference at New York Law School. The conference brings together political leaders, academics (Danielle Citron, Frank Pasquale, and Ann Bartow will be speaking!), lawyers, educators, policy makers, parents, and students to discuss how to combat cyberharassment, which overwhelmingly affects women and members of the LGBTQ community. With keynote addresses from Congresswoman Kathleen Rice (D-NY) and Congressman Mark Pocan (D-WI) and participation from business leaders at AT&T, Microsoft, and Twitter, alongside lawyers doing the hard work on the ground to represent victims of online harassment, the conference will be a great way to push the conversation on cyberharassment.

Most notably, at the conference, NYLS and I are launching what I hope will be a groundbreaking program: the first ever law school pro bono clinic that will provide free counsel to victims of cyberharassment. We are excited to partner with AT&T, which is the presenting sponsor of the conference, and many other partners (Microsoft, Twitter, NYLS, K&L Gates's Cyber Civil Rights Legal Project, and CA Goldberg Law PLLC).

The conference is free and breakfast and lunch with served both days (and CLE is available for lawyers). Please register if you would like to attend. Let me know if you have any questions ([email protected]).
