From chat rooms to sexting, how do we keep our children safe from online predators? Please join the Syracuse Law Review and SU College of Law community on Saturday, April 9, 2011 for a groundbreaking conference at the College of Law which will bring together legal scholars, children’s advocates, and law enforcement from across the U.S. for discussions regarding the safety of America’s children in the Internet age.

“This conference will be a unique opportunity for academics, legal professionals, and local community members to come together for a critical examination and timely discussion about the safety of our children in the Internet era,” says third-year law student Jennifer M. Haralambides, who is editor in chief of the Syracuse Law Review.

Marc Klaas, founder of the KlaasKids Foundation for Children and national advocate for child safety, will be the keynote speaker at 3 p.m. in Hendricks Chapel. Mr. Klaas started his Foundation after the 1993 kidnap, rape, and murder of his 12-year-old daughter.

In addition to Mr. Klaas’ keynote, the day-long conference will feature presentations by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, the U.S. Attorney’s Office, the Federal Public Defender’s Office, and leading scholars including Ilya Shapiro from the CATO Institute, Professor Amy Adler from NYU, and Professor Mary G. Leary from Catholic University.
