New Seminar Series: Future of Law in Technology and Governance

This month CGM is launching a new virtual seminar series, Future of Law in Technology, co-sponsored by the Future Law Project at the University of Pittsburgh. The Future Law Project convenes leadership conversations about ongoing transformations in three areas: Governance, Expertise, and Economics. Law professor and Future Law Project faculty director, Michael Madison, organized the series and will moderate four sessions featuring distinguished scholars from around the world.  

Emerging technologies – from artificial intelligence to blockchain to Big Data – pose enormous challenges to the roles and functions of law in society. The ongoing digital revolution continues to transform nearly every aspect of political, economic, and social orders. Spanning governments and governance, this series features big thinking, emerging thinking, and critical thinking about blends of law, computing, markets, and politics.  

Frank Fagan, Associate Professor at EDHEC Business School and Director of the EDHEC Augmented Law Institute, will begin the series. He will present his paper, “Competing Algorithms for Law,” on Thursday, January 21, 2021 at 3pm EST. This series is open to the public, registration required.
