World Bank Lead Counsel to Deliver Koley Lecture at Creighton University

Lecture Postponed until Feb 28 at 3 p.m. 


World Bank Lead Counsel, David Satola will discuss “Regulation of Online Freedom: International Internet Governance and Human Rights,” during the 2013 Koley Lecture at 3 p.m. Thursday, Feb 28, in the Gross Appellate Courtroom (Room 124) at Creighton University School of Law.

The lecture, which is free to the public, is part of the Creighton University School of Law Koley Lecture Series, and is approved for CLE credit for attorneys in Nebraska and Iowa. To receive CLE credit, attorneys must check in at the CLE registration table outside the Gross Appellate Courtroom.

Recent negotiations in the International Telecommunication Union Treaty indicate that governments are attempting to replace the current multi-stakeholder model for Internet governance with state-centered control. These efforts present new threats to human rights, including freedom of speech, privacy, and access to information.

Satola has been following these issues globally and speaks regularly in international forums on Internet governance. He will offer important insights on these topics and their implications for human freedom and flourishing.
