This event has been postponed for a later date.

This complimentary webinar workshop is intended to be an introduction to representing victims of sexual cyber harassment. Panelists will discuss the practicalities of what lawyers can and must do to successfully represent clients suffering from online harassment that is sexual in nature. Not only will attendees hear from practicing lawyers who work with cutting-edge technology and who have been recognized for their groundbreaking legal work in this arena, but they also will hear from a victim who has been the target of vicious online attacks and exploitation to learn what life is like on the other side of the attorney-client relationship. In this webinar, we will walk through the process of representing victims, beginning with client intake, and continuing with the preservation of electronic evidence, filing civil actions, battling forensic issues, common legal hurdles, ethical issues, available tools for removal of intimate media from the internet, and other key information.
