The Virtual Spring Meeting 2020 of the State & Local Government Law Section
The theme for this year was “Government in the Age of Information Technology and Social Media and the focal points are the challenges and benefits that the use of social media and advances in information technology present for state, local, and tribal governments, as well as for those whose businesses and personal lives are affected by government use of social media and IT. This comprehensive program offers legal and practical insights for those who represent state, local, and tribal governments as well as those who represent private parties on matters involving those governments.
Listen to key industry professionals as they address a breadth of complex issues:
- From the monitoring of student social media posts to address security concerns, to the regulation of government-employee speech through social media;
- From an exploration of advances in technology, to an analysis of steps to address cybersecurity; and,
- From the ethical implications of electronic communication, to the implications for advancements in IT on government transparency.
This year all sessions took place virtually over the course of three afternoons (Tuesday-Thursday, May 19th-21st). Buy the bundle of all three webinars here, or check them out individually below.
