Our Online Lives: The Intersection of Law, Privacy, and Health
Friday, April 26, 2013 - 8:30am to Friday, April 26, 2013 - 12:00pm

April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month

In honor of National Crime Victims’ Rights Week 2013, NCVLI will host a facilitated panel presentation and discussion titled “Our Online Lives: The Intersection of Law, Privacy, and Health.” The conversation will explore how our online lives drive a convergence of the public and private spheres, and what this means for individuals and communities when victimization is involved. A panel of experts will frame and guide the discussion, touching on topics of law, privacy, technology, trauma, media framing, and public discourse. Panelists include: Meg Garvin, M.A., J.D., Executive Director of the National Crime Victim Law Institute and a clinical Professor of Law at Lewis & Clark Law School; Dr. Chris Wilson, Psy.D; Janine Robben, J.D., Adjunct Professor at the Edward R. Murrow College of Communication at Washington State University; Cynthia Lou Coleman, PhD, PSU faculty member and researcher. Recent high profile cases involving the intersection of victim privacy and the Internet will serve as cornerstones for the discussion, including the Penn State child sexual abuse case, the Steubenville, Ohio teenage rape case, and an Oregon case involving a rape survivor who had to fight to keep her Google searches private. Given the uncharted territory of technology’s role in criminal investigation and prosecution; the slow realization of the breadth, scope, and availability of our online lives to public scrutiny; and the recognition that the new public sphere may itself be an online venue, the need for information and discussion is increasingly pressing. Share your voice, and join the conversation with NCVLI on April 26! This event is intended for lawyers, victim and social service providers, community members, students, and other professionals. Individually and as a community we contribute to the experience of victims, whether as family, neighbor, counselor, doctor, fellow student, media consumer, or attorney. This event is FREE, and attendance at this event may qualify participants for 2.5 hours of general CLE credits in Oregon, pending approval from the Oregon State Bar. Registration is required: Here

To be held in Urban Building room 212
