Social media enables instant access to individual self-expression and the sharing of information. Social media issues are boundless, permeating distinct legal disciplines. The law has struggled to adapt and for good reason: how does the law regulate this medium over the public/private law divide?

This event will facilitate a discussion of this critical issue and others included in a new book The Legal Challenges of Social Media (edited by David Mangan and Lorna E Gillies, Edward Elgar, 2017. The book engages with the legal implications of social media from public and private law perspectives and outlines how the law, in various legal sub-disciplines and with varying success, has endeavoured to adapt existing tools to social media.
