We will explore the interrelationship between law, science and technology and the role of science and technology in law by examining a series of specific problems. Examples include the legal ramifications of recent technological developments such as polygraph testing, clinical testing of new treatments on human subjects, cable television and the newest vehicle for mass communications, Internet, and fiber optics. Another issue that will be explored is the influence of new statistical and mathematical methods on the law. Students write and make a presentation to the class on a topic of their choosing.
