The Michigan Technology Law Review (MTLR) is proud to host its thirtieth anniversary symposium on artificial intelligence at the University of Michigan Law School.
Led by a keynote from Chinmayi Arun of the Information Society Project, our event will feature four panels that discuss legal ethics, autonomous vehicles, financial regulation, and intellectual property. These discussions will delve into social, ethical, and legal implications of the technology for stakeholders across the board. Our panelists, who have grounded experience in technology, span industry, civil rights activism, government, and academia.
Throughout the day, interactive discussions and networking opportunities will enable law students, legal professionals, and scholars to engage on the myriad promises and perils of AI.
Through interactive discussions and networking opportunities, attendees will be able to connect with legal professionals and experts in the field, allowing them to build relationships and gain valuable insights into the opportunities and challenges ahead.
Chinmayi Arun is the Executive Director of the Information Society Project and a Research Scholar at Yale Law School. Her research focuses on platform governance, social media, algorithmic decision-making, the data economy and privacy, within the larger universe of questions raised by law’s relationship with the information society. She is interested in how these questions affect marginalized populations, especially in the Majority World.
Before arriving at Yale, Arun was Assistant Professor of Law at two of the most highly regarded law schools in India. During that time, she also founded and led the Centre for Communication Governance at National Law University Delhi. Arun has served as a Human Rights Officer (temporary appointment) at the United Nations, where she worked on questions of privacy, online speech and artificial intelligence, as well as on advisory committees of international bodies like UNESCO and UN Global Pulse. She has also advised governmental entities and served on the boards of non-profit entities.
Our panels will focus on the near-term implications of artificial intelligence, weaving in recent policy, economic, and legal developments. Moreover, this will just be the beginning of the conversation with a forthcoming MTLR Symposium issue to follow in Spring 2024.
MTLR, founded in 1994, is one of the nation’s first online, student-published journals. In its founding year, MTLR held a symposium on Competition and the Information Superhighway, which recognized the power of the the internet and its implications for antitrust enforcement. Leveraging expertise and passion at the University of Michigan, MTLR has continued to organize symposia that convene scholars and practitioners focused on emerging and impactful technologies.
