Room 4085, UNC School of Law

What role does big tech have in regulating our national conversation? What is the impact of digital censorship? And, in all of this, does the First Amendment have any bearing on social media platforms?

The Media Law Society is hosting a panel to address the intersection of free speech values, the First Amendment, and our growing reliance on major social media companies that wield an increasing amount of censorial power.

Panelists include:

  • David Ardia, associate professor of law at UNC School of Law and faculty co-director of the UNC Center for Media Law and Policy
  • Enrique Armijo, associate professor of law at Elon Law and Associate Dean for Academic Affairs
  • Mary-Rose Papandrea, Judge John J. Parker Distinguished Professor of Law at UNC School of Law and Associate Dean for Academic Affairs

Pizza will be provided.
