Duquesne University School of Law and The Federalist Society are pleased to present the #Futurelaw 4.0 Junior Faculty Workshop, where scholars are to present and respond to papers and original research in a rigorous but collegial atmosphere. The event will be held on November 22, 2019 from 8:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. in the 4th Floor Faculty Lounge of Duquesne University's School of Law.
This workshop focuses on the ways the law must evolve to address emerging technologies. Developments like artificial intelligence, algorithmic decision-making, cryptocurrencies, facial recognition technology, and ephemeral messaging all impact longstanding legal doctrine and challenge scholars to envision a future legal regime that promotes innovation while coping with the new challenges technology creates. These new technological innovations permeate all areas of law, from criminal justice to business & finance. As emerging technologies disrupt existing legal and regulatory structures, the study of "Futurelaw" becomes crucial to allow for the law to adapt to the realities of new technology.
Apply today for a chance to become a participant in the event and/or attend as a mentor, observer, or student.
