Workshop: Law + Computation: An Algorithm for the Rule of Law and Justice?

 Saturday, February 6, 2021
 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM
 Virtual Room 1
 Law and Technology Initiative
 Daniel Linna

This workshop is co-organized by the Northwestern Law and Technology Initiative and the Northwestern Journal of Technology and Intellectual Property. Computation is poised to transform legal services, legal systems, and the law itself. Making the most of innovation and technology, and understanding the benefits and risks, requires deep collaboration between computer scientists and legal professionals (lawyers, academics, etc.). This interdisciplinary symposium brings together researchers working at the intersection of law and computation to explore the effects of computation on law. Each panel will discuss three themes: (1) technological capabilities today and in the future, (2) the impact on the rule of law and justice, including the risks and benefits of technology, and (3) the research and guidance required to chart a path to increased prosperity and justice in society with computation for legal services, legal systems, and the law.
