Law and Data Science Summit

Law and Data Science Summit

When: October 5, 2018, 8:30 am – 2:00 pm

Where: Law Building, 504 E. Pennsylvania Avenue

Registration Closed at 5pm on October 3, 2018.

The intersection between data science and the law includes pressing issues for the producers, users, and regulators of data – meaning virtually everyone. This summit examines how data science applies to law, looking at the promise of data science for our increased understanding of legal texts, law, and the important issues with which the law is grappling daily. It also asks how the law applies to data science, examining pervasive issues of privacy, ethics, and ownership.
