Getting some legal education over a great meal has always been a terrific combination. This Wednesday, lawyers and others will belly up to teppanyaki bars to hear about ethics, law and social media.

The lunchtime gathering is hosted by the Phoenix chapter of the Public Relations Society of America. (Follow them on Twitter here.)

I’ve enjoyed a good number of PRSA events in the past, and I appreciate the lawyer-filled panel they’ve created. The attorneys will sit at grill tables at Sapporo, where they will facilitate discussions among attendees—all while they are entertained and nourished by the creation of delicious food.

Here is more information about the event from the PRSA:

Have you wondered about the legal ramifications of posting news clips on your website or whether or not you need permission to re-use an image of a photographer you hired for an event? If so, do not miss our upcoming Ethics Luncheon.

Join us for an interactive discussion on copyright and social media law, and other common ethical dilemmas set around teppanyaki tables. The luncheon will feature small-table discussions with industry leaders while enjoying the entertainment of the teppanyaki chefs. Come hungry and prepared with your questions.

A social way to learn about social media law
