Innovation and new technologies consistently generate regulatory questions, whether and how to govern the production, distribution, operation, or use of the technology and what consequences may follow from regulation for industry, marginalized groups, and the population in general. Of course, different technologies involve different background conditions and contexts that raise discrete regulatory questions and related issues of law and policy. Thus, there is a robust and growing set of sub-disciplines focused on law relating to cybersecurity, big data, artificial intelligence, robotics, nanotechnology, and assisted reproductive technology to name just a few. This course seeks to provide students with the analytic and critical tools necessary to engage current law and technology issues in a sophisticated way both theoretically and doctrinally. Ideally, these tools may eventually be employed by interested students in the future to evaluate the latest innovations and technologies over time.
