SOCIAL MEDIA TRACK
Social Media and the Courts presented by Omar Ha-Redeye
Should reporters and members of the public be allowed to live-tweet courtroom proceedings? How much weight should Facebook photos and comments be afforded in litigation? Should jury members be restricted from all social media use during trial? Social media has changed the way information is distributed in society. In the absence of specific regulations, the role of social media in the courts has largely been left to judicial discretion. But is the judiciary necessarily the best arbitrator on what the balance between competing interest should be, especially when they are not necessarily active users of social media? Come share some of your thoughts based on your own social media and legal experiences.
