'When law can do no right: legal limitations in the “fake news” era'
This lecture will consider both the private and public laws’ limitations in the face of the proliferation of fake news and mass misinformation. It asks to what extent even a reformed law is adequate to the task of mitigating the problem and, if so, at what cost.
