Justice Speaks Lunch: Digital Empowerment: International Human Rights Go Local

Wednesday, April 24, 2013, 12:50pm-1:50pm W302

In recent years, new technologies have revolutionized activism, making it easier than ever for citizens to engage with one another and with their government. Professor Molly Land, Associate Professor of Law at New York Law School, will focus on the use of technological advances to engage in human rights activism. Although new technologies bring considerable benefits and opportunities, they also pose risks. Information may not be accurate, or the volume of information can overwhelm activists. The lunch discussion will cover these issues as well as several recommendations to overcome the risks and challenges of using new technologies in human rights activism.

Attendees at this program may be eligible for one hour of CLE credit in professional practice for both transitional and non-transitional attorneys.
