StreetLaw Event 2019: Law and the Use of Smartphones

9 April 2019 – School of Law

The StreetLaw team, made of Queen’s law undergraduate students and led by the PhD researcher Nkem Itanyi, delivered a presentation about the law regarding the use of smartphones to secondary school students and the general public. The Streetlaw project aims at educating wider communities on contemporary legal debates, especially pupils from secondary schools. This year’s presentation covered a number of different themes related to smartphone use, including images rights, data protection, cyberbullying, sexting and copyright laws in the United Kingdom and the European Union. The workshop was interactive, with people in the audience responding to specific questions posed by the speakers. Its aim was to increase awareness about legal issues that may result from the use of smartphones, computers and social media.
