Social Media and the Law

About this event

Social media offers a number of benefits to not-for-profit organisations, including expanding reach, connecting people, starting conversations and growing awareness. Along with those benefits comes legal risks which can impact negatively on the organisation and its people. The High Court’s recent decision in the Voller defamation case demonstrates how far-reaching the responsibility of organisations can be for content posted on their social media accounts.

In this webinar we’ll explain the implications of Voller’s case for the way your organisation manages its social media accounts – as well as stepping you through other key legal risks for not-for-profit organisations that engage with social media and how to manage these risks.

We’ll cover:

• Legal considerations when curating content, including confidentiality and intellectual property
• Defamation laws and Voller’s case
• Personal information and privacy issues
• How to manage social media use and content posted by others
• Top tips and further resources

You'll receive:

• 75-minutes of plain-language training from an expert lawyer
• Copy of webinar recording and slide presentation (recording available for 30 days)
• Information on further resources and support
• Opportunity to ask questions


Receive the webinar recording and slides 1-2 days after you register
