This course will examine how law and legal practice have changed, and continue to change, in response to three interrelated technological developments: the rise of big data, the emergence of the so-called "platform economy," and the ongoing evolution of artificial intelligence. The material will run the gamut from private law (the rules that regulate information companies, consumers, and other private actors) to public law (the rules that constrain state power and shape the judicial process). Specific topics include: cybersecurity, information privacy, predictive policing, the future of labor, and the legal implications of machine learning.
