This timely and informative program includes a conversation with Felicia Farber, Esq., author of the multi-award-winning novel Ice Queen, a true-to-life romantic suspense tale that focuses on an innocent high school junior who gets caught up in a sexting scandal and discovers that the very laws that are meant to protect her end up turning her into a criminal.
Social media and other enhanced communications can complicate our lives and present serious dangers for teens and tweens. In particular, laws related to sexting and cyberbullying are often outdated or inadequate and can put adolescents in precarious situations. Ice Queen highlights some of these critical 21st-century issues created by rapid advancements in technology.
Join the New Jersey State Bar Foundation (NJSBF) as Felicia Farber is interviewed by New Jersey State Bar Association President and certified criminal trial attorney Kimberly Yonta. Then, Yonta will lead a roundtable discussion with a panel that includes Felicia, Dr. Stuart Green, a licensed clinical social worker and director of New Jersey Coalition for Bullying Awareness; Michael F. Kaelber, Esq., coordinator for Online Course Development, LEGAL ONE, NJPSA FEA; and Karen Painter Randall, a certified civil trial attorney and chair of the Connell Foley Data Privacy Group. Together they will explore the dangerous cyber behaviors of children who inadvertently run afoul of our laws both in and out of school.
Professional development certificates are available for educators.
