In the wake of the Arab Spring and American Autumn protests of 2011, public protest actions are becoming increasingly common, and attorneys are increasingly being sought out by individuals and organizations to assist in these protest actions, whether in securing permitting, observing police interactions, or defending arrested protesters.
Join a panel of seasoned practitioners in exploring the relevant laws and practices that mediate and define first amendment protected protest activities, and to learn the tricks of the trade that enable attorneys to preserve and protect protesters’ rights.
Some of the topics to be discussed include:
Right to engage in peaceful protest activity (demonstration/rallies/march)
Right to distribute material/press conferences/Amplification
Right protest and reasonable limitation; permitting
Applicable Federal, State and Municipal Statutes, Codes and Regulations
Common protest charges
