DFF organises regular speaker series with experts that explore key issues in digital rights and strategic litigation. The first of these events was held in 2020 and examined the role of competition law in protecting digital rights. The second series in  2021 looked at challenges to the “digital welfare state”. The third series will run from November to December 2022 and will give an overview of central topics around racial and social justice impacted by digital technologies from an anti-colonial perspective.
