Social Media & the Law – Webinar


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, if poorly managed, 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 socials.

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.


What 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 


What 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)
  • Opportunity to submit questions
  • Information on further resources and support


Who should attend?

Anyone involved in the use of social media in their not-for-profit organisation.
