Workshop #1: Cyberbullying

Students, schools, and parents have struggled to address the real harms of cyberbullying as the internet has taken center stage in student lives. How have schools attempted to ameliorate harms? How do those attempts reflect other legal trends? Have those attempts created new harms? In this workshop, we will explore answers to those questions, and reflect on ways in which law may or may not be used to help students maintain community.
