The Increasing Risks of Defamation Claims and Privacy Concerns

Since the #MeToo Movement more complainants have chosen to speak out about their experiences to the press or online. Defamation lawsuits are increasingly used to silence complainants or commentary on allegations of sexual harassment, misconduct and other types of complaints. Join us to learn how the law is rapidly evolving in this area, particular complexities in cases involving sharing comments online, and the realities of defamation lawsuits, limits of available defences, and anti-SLAPP legislation.

Attendees may claim up to 1.5 hours of CPD credit with the Law Society of BC.

Presented by Daniel Reid and Roshni Veerapen, Harper Grey LLP.
