This course examines how law, regulation and government policy shape the development and success of new technologies. It surveys the major legal and policy issues raised by emergent regulatory regimes for self-driving cars, drones, the Internet of Things, online intermediaries like Google and Facebook and sharing economy businesses like Uber and Airbnb. Using these specific technologies as anchors, students are introduced to modern regulation and regulatory agencies, exploring the design, implementation and enforcement of regulation.
