Law + Computation: An Algorithm for the Rule of Law and Justice? - Northwestern University Academic Symposium
Friday, Feb. 5, 9:00 am to 2:00 pm CST (Chicago time)

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.
