    The Internet and the Constitution

    The Internet has been available for public use for almost two decades. We depend on the Internet for how we socialize, consume, vote, learn and interact, with both positive and potentially negative consequences. The Internet’s influence has been so pervasive that it even raises pervasive Constitutional issues. Judge McKeown of the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals will give a presentation as part of the Shidler lecture series entitled, “The Internet and the Constitution,” providing an overview of some of the significant Constitutional issues that have been raised by the Internet, and those that are emerging, during this time of great change and challenge.

    About the Roger L. Shidler Lecture Series

    The Shidler Lecture Series is named after Roger L. Shidler (UW Law class of 1924), a founder of the law firm Shidler, McBroom, Gates & Lucas (now K&L Gates).  Through the years, the firm grew to become one of Seattle’s most vibrant and influential law practices.  To celebrate Roger Shidler’s legacy, this series brings outstanding academics, judges and practicing lawyers to UW Law to discuss leading issues in intellectual property law, an ever-more important economic driver for our region and the global economy.
