Defamation and First Amendment Workshop with Nicole Page

 

Wednesday, March 15, 2017  | 6:30-8:30pm

 

 

Free speech in the U.S. is under threat in a way that is new and frightening. Defamation lawsuits targeting speech have surged in recent months, and high-profile cases against the likes of Gawker and Katie Couric have gained much attention. While on their face, these cases are about defamation they can also have the effect of free speech suppression. In the current political climate, documentary filmmakers may come under intense scrutiny, regardless of their journalistic integrity. This workshop will look at how defamation cases could have a chilling effect on free speech, and how documentary filmmakers can protect themselves moving forward. Join WMM as we welcome Nicole Page, a Women Make Movies Board Member and a Partner of the Law Firm, Reavis, Parent and Lehrer who practices in the areas of entertainment, intellectual property and employment law. ​
