2019-2020 Symposium

Influence: How Law Should Respond to Technology’s Grip on Consumers, Elections, and the Courts

Thursday, February 20, 2020, at Vanderbilt Law School 

Come attend JETLaw’s 2020 symposium!

The theme is technological influence, how algorithms silently control consumers, elections, and the courts.

JETLaw cordially invites legal practitioners, elected officials, judges, the media (both traditional and new), and any interested persons to participate in lively discussion on this controversial topic.

The event will take place on a single day and will consist of three panels:

(1) Technology’s influence on consumers (subjects such as targeted advertising, social media influencers)
(2) Technology’s influence on elections (subjects such as echo chambers, Facebook’s news feed)
(3) Technology’s influence on courts (subjects such as analytics of judges and juries)

Please contact Cole Browndorf (cole.browndorf@vanderbilt.edu) if you are interested in participating in a panel or providing the keynote presentation. Also feel free to contact if you are simply attending and have any questions.

This event is free and open to the anyone. CLE credit is available upon request.
