@UofSCLaw Legal IT Seminar:
“Tools To Help Victims of Nonconsensual Pornography”
16 February 2017 @ 8:00 AM - 9:00 AM
FEB. 16, 2017:
This CLE will focus on the intersection of technology and personal privacy through the lens of nonconsensual porn – better known as “revenge porn.” Now criminalized in 34 states and the District of Columbia, nonconsensual pornography has harmed thousands of victims. The program will offer insights for practitioners, scholars and law students into state of the law, how it impacts victims, and the way forward in combating this crime.
The program will highlight best practices developed to address this topic, particularly the varied toolkit available to mitigate the harm of nonconsensual pornography, protect victims and de-anonymize offenders. In particular we will discuss how to respond in states, such as South Carolina, that lack criminal nonconsensual pornography laws.
The seminar has been requested for one hour of general CLE credit (course #171646). It will be held in the School of Law Auditorium and is open to both law students and members of the legal community.
The program starts at 8 am, but come early for coffee, breakfast, and a chance to network.
