Law & Technology Virtual Workshop

The Law & Tech Workshop has been running since April 2020 when the COVID-19 pandemic forced us to move a planned in-person workshop online. Now in its second year, speakers are scheduled through Summer 2022. The purpose of this workshop is to convene scholars who work at the intersection at law and technology to present and provide feedback on early-stage research.

As of March 2021, this workshop is co-hosted by Alan Rozenshtein, Kyle Langvardt, Asaf Lubin, João Marinotti, and Gus Hurwitz
