|Lindsay to speak on negative effects of Facebook at SSU
The negative effects of Facebook will be explored by C.L. Lindsay, a nationally recognized expert and leader in the field of student rights and academic freedom, on Tuesday, Sept. 25, at 7 p.m. in Evert B. Person Theatre. This event is free.
“Trouble Online: Campus Computing and the Law” is a presentation designed to teach students about online plagiarism and intellectual property rights. Lindsay will be speaking about how posting pictures of underage drinking and illegal use of drugs on the Internet can result in very serious disciplinary actions such as getting thrown out of college. Additionally, he will speak about the dangers and frightening possibilities of online stalking.
In 1998, Lindsay, an attorney, left his practice in New York City to found the Coalition for Student and Academic Rights (CO-STAR).
Since then, acting as its executive director, he has built CO-STAR into a national student rights organization that helps thousands of college students with their legal problems, free-of-charge, each year.
His syndicated column, "Ask CO-STAR " is distributed nationwide on Knight Ridder/Tribune's College Wire Service. The column, published weekly, has become one of Knight Ridder/Tribune's most popular features.
He is also the author of “The College Student's Guide to the Law: Get a Grade Changed, Keep Your Stuff Private, Throw a Police-Free Party, and More!” published in August 2005 by Taylor Trade Publishing. He has appeared on national television, radio and has been featured in countless regional and national publications.
He graduated magna cum laude from Denison University, and received his J.D. from the University of Michigan. In his spare time, he teaches courses in Law and Literature at the University of Pennsylvania.
