Scholars and Students with Prof. Wojcik, March 31

Libel Tourism: Where in the World Can You Get Sued for Defamation on the Internet?

Monday, March 31 at 12:15 pm in room 1103

The development of global electronic communication has made it possible for instantaneous and universal publication of defamatory remarks, meaning that plaintiffs can sue anywhere in the world for libel. Are some jurisdictions likely to be more sympathetic to these plaintiffs? How should courts handle what could end up being a large increase in defamation cases?

Join us for pizza and a talk by Prof. Mark Wojcik on these questions as part of our Scholars & Students series. This series provides opportunities for you to get to know your professors in an informal setting and to learn what they are working on outside of the classroom.

RSVP to pjohnso@jmls.edu.
