New Media Rights recently teamed up with California Western's Community Law Project (CLP) to present a media and privacy law presentation at Hoover High School!
Assistant Director Shaun Spalding and Staff Attorney Erika Lee talked to three freshman classes about some of the laws that control deceptive advertising online, data collection laws like the Children's Online Privacy Act, and how social media sites comply with these important laws. We also got to talk about how some artificial intelligence technologies learn from the content that people post online.
New Media Rights works with a variety of different local organizations that make a social impact on the local community. One of these organizations is the Community Law Project, one our sister clinics at California Western.
CLP is is a law student-run project which provides pro bono legal services to low income people in the greater San Diego community. CLP assists individuals who are homeless, disabled, immigrants, or otherwise without access to legal services, and provides law students with experiential learning and an awareness of the community’s legal needs, and instilling in them a desire to pursue pro bono work during their careers.
Thanks to Hoover High School and California Western's Community Law Project for having us!
This presentation was made possible in part by the Rose Foundation.
