Vedder Price Shareholder Blaine Kimrey will be a presenter at the 33rd Annual University of Kansas School of Law Media and the Law Seminar, taking place virtually this year on April 14-16th, 2021.

The annual Media and the Law Seminar is co-hosted by the University of Kansas School of Law and the Kansas City Metropolitan Bar Association Media Law Committee, and brings together lawyers, students and teachers, to discuss the latest legal issues and developments in media, law and technology. This year’s program focuses on the potential pitfalls awaiting Instagram and other social media influencers, including the FTC’s sponsored advertising rules, the ethical issues of buying followers, and the myriad of reasons social media influencers can be sued.

Mr. Kimrey will moderate a panel discussion at the seminar, entitled “Defamation 101 – Back to Basics,” on Wednesday April 14th at 3:00 PM CST. The educational panel will be presented via point/counterpoint by lawyers acting as defense and plaintiff’s counsel, running through and engaging the audience on classic defamation claim issues.
