TechLaw @ Arizona Law

September 28, 2018

Technology is changing the world around us and the law is racing to keep pace. But technology is also changing the practice of law and the administration of justice. TechLaw is a new global initiative based at the University of Arizona James E. Rogers College of Law, created to examine issues on both sides of the law-and-technology nexus, including: privacy, cybersecurity, innovation for justice, quantlaw, regulatory science, and more. Please join University of Arizona Law faculty on September 28 for our launch event with experts from: Google, IBM Watson, NextLaw Labs, ABA Center for Innovation, Metajure, Pew Charitable Trusts, the ACLU, and more.
