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 2020. These workshops have continued and are now held about every other Wednesday afternoon. As of March 2021, they are being co-hosted by Alan Rozenshtein (Minnesota), Kyle Langvardt and Gus Hurwitz
If you are interested in participating in this workshop series, either as a presenter or participant, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. 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.
A list of past and upcoming workshops is below - and more will be announced!
