The First Amendment Bubble: How Privacy and Paparazzi Threaten a Free Press
New England Law Review Spring 2016 Symposium
Thursday, February 11, 2016, 4 p.m.
New England Law | Boston, Cherry Room
154 Stuart Street, Boston, MA 02116
The New England Law Review spring book symposium will showcase Professor Amy Gajda’s book “The First Amendment Bubble: How Privacy and Paparazzi Threaten a Free Press," which explores judicial oversight of journalism news judgment.
Gajda teaches at Tulane University School of Law and is recognized internationally for her expertise in media law, torts, information privacy and higher education law. Her keynote remarks will be followed by feedback and commentary from a panel of prominent legal voices including Clay Calvert, professor, University of Florida, and Sonja R. West, associate professor, University of Georgia School of Law.
Professor Gajda will discuss how the expansion of acceptable news content has shifted courts’ focus from the First Amendment to individual privacy—a shift that curtails mainstream journalists’ press freedoms.
