Spring 2019
LAW611  AW  TOPICS IN TECHNOLOGY LAW SEMINAR

Course Description
This seminar will consider how the legal system responds to new technology. Most of our attention will be on issues -- many not yet resolved -- arising from very recent developments in Artificial Intelligence and from Robotics, but the law's reaction to other technologies, ranging from the telegraph and the railroad to the Internet, will make their appearances too.

A paper is required. Students may write their seminar papers on any mutually agreeable issue relating to law and technology. Grading will be based on the paper and seminar participation.

This 2-credit seminar will initially meet twice a week to discuss readings and to help participants select paper topics. Then the course will not meet for several weeks in order to allow participants to write their papers and receive feedback on drafts. It will resume at the end of the semester for student paper presentations
