This event is free and open to the public.

* Does the #MeToo moment signal a radical shift in social tolerance for sexual harassment/assault?

* In what ways might a phenomenon started on social media have effects in the law?

* Is there any merit to the concern that #MeToo has gone too far by triggering a sex panic?

* What are the racial underpinnings/implications of #MeToo?

* Does #MeToo have any purchase in the law school as a working/learning environment?
