Social Media and the Law Symposium

charlestonlawreviewYesterday, January 31, 2014, the Charleston Law Review, of the Charleston School of Law,  and the Riley Institute, of Furman University, presented the 6th Annual Law and Society Symposium, Social Media and the Law in the Charleston Music Hall.  Four panels discussed the legal implications of social media on employment, privacy, wills, and ethics law.  Charleston School of Law professors Amanda Compton, Allyson Haynes Stuart and Nancy Zisk moderated three of the four panels.  Ryan M. Garcia, legal counsel at Dell and an adjunct professor at the University of Texas at Austin, was the keynote speaker and humorously addressed, via seven stories, the various pitfalls, legal and business, that the unwary individual sometimes encountered regarding social media.  Congratulations to the Charleston Law Review staff on staging an informative and interesting symposium.
