Can Media and Law Co-Exist?
May 6, 2017 @ 09:00 - 16:30RM53
In conjunction with World Press Freedom Day on 3 May 2017, the Bar Council Continuing Professional Development and Malaysiakini are collaborating to organise this event to provide a platform for the fourth estate — comprising the press and citizen journalists and, by extension, people who generate everyday content for the public — to understand how Malaysian law regulates a key right enshrined in the Federal Constitution, ie the freedom of expression. The speakers for this event are representatives from both the legal community and media industry, who will examine and analyse how the exercise of the freedom of expression can be challenged, and how to safeguard this right in times of heightened political, religious and racial contestations.
