Rule of Law, Misinformation, and the Digital Age
Join the UPenn Law ACS Student Chapter on Wednesday, April 14th from 5:30 to 6:30 PM EST for a special event on the “Rule of Law, Misinformation, and the Digital Age.” This event will be an informal discussion with Professor Anita L. Allen and Professor Claire Finkelstein.
We have seen the tangible, potentially deadly results that misinformation can sow over the past few years, from “fake news” and “Pizzagate” to the rise of white nationalism and the insurrection at the Capitol. The proliferation of this radicalized rhetoric has been spread over social media, with seemingly little oversight.
This event will examine the role of institutions such as the news media, social media, regulatory agencies, and legislative bodies in combating radicalization and the spread of misinformation, and explore how should society respond to this using the tools of technology, politics, and the law?
