Law & Technology Virtual Workshop

In April 2020, NGTC had planned to host a small works-in-progress workshop in collaboration with colleagues at Brooklyn Law School. The purpose of this workshop had been to convene about a dozen scholars who work at the intersection at law and technology to present and provide feedback on early-stage research.

As with all plans for spring and summer 2020, the pandemic made this workshop impossible. Instead, we held a series of virtual workshops, starting in April 202. These workshops have continued and are now held on second and fourth Thursdays each month. As of August 2020, they are being co-hosted by Alan Rozenshtein (Minnesota) and Gus Hurwitz.

If you are interested in participating in this workshop series, either as a presenter or participant, please e-mail Please note that we try to maintain a relatively small number of participants in each workshop so that we can have a fruitful virtual discussion.
