DRI3522 - Social Media, Government, and the First Amendment


Nov 1, 2019 12:00pm ‐ Nov 1, 2019 1:15pm

Description

Our government clients use social media in a myriad of ways. Elected officials communicate with constituents. Police, fire, and other departments engage with their community to provide updates on key government events, crises, and for their recruitment and hiring of new employees. Employees use social media in ways that blur the lines between off-duty and on-duty activities. This collision of agendas and views often results in claims and liability under the First Amendment. This webinar provides a primer on how courts are applying the First Amendment to social media activities of elected officials and employment.
