The New Technologies Legal Forum
A series of free webinars for legal professionals, law students and the public
Hosted by Attorney Julian Gresser
Technology advances at lightning speed in multiple directions simultaneously. In response, the wheels of government turn slowly, often impeded by the purveyors of new technologies who resist any attempts at regulation. So it is no surprise that we are often finding ourselves in uncharted waters when it comes to the legal challenges posed by the implementation of new technologies.
This series of webinars is designed to present and discuss some of the more pressing legal issues currently found at the nexus of technology and law.
