Scott Dawson Presents at CMLA Conference on Defense of Responsible Journalism in Defamation Trials

Farris Partner Scott Dawson presented at the 2010 Canadian Media Lawyers’ Association. The CMLA brings together media lawyers from across Canada.
The 2010 conference consisted of a two-day program addressing various aspects of media law ranging from pre-publication advice to copyright law to the defence of defamation cases. 

Scott chaired a group discussion on the defence of responsible communication in the public interest. The new defence, created in 2010 by judgments of the Supreme Court of Canada, presents practical challenges to those seeking to rely on the defence.
