Symposium

Green Tweets: The Promise and Peril of 
Advancing Corporate Social Responsibility
Through Social Media

Friday, April 4, 2014
9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
Room 101

This program has been approved by the
Continuing Legal Education Board for 5 substantive CLE credits.

A growing number of businesses have committed to green corporate social responsibility (CSR) programs. Simultaneously, social media such as Facebook and Twitter have revolutionized the way consumers access information and communicate with each other. At the convergence of these two trends, CSR conveyed through social media can foster a more efficient, transparent, and interactive relationship between business and consumer. But there are risks as well. The Symposium will explore the business and legal implications of advancing CSR campaigns through social media under the sometimes skeptical eye of the public and green advertising regulation.
