Sovereignty: The Race to Regulate, Putting Consumers
First as Communication Technology Emerges

February 22, 2018
9:00 AM—12:00 PM

The George Washington University Law School’s Tasher Great Room

This year’s theme examines who would be better suited to regulate emerging technology and the related industries. For example, many states have recently passed laws regulating biometrics, driverless vehicles, and data breaches. Is Congress or the federal government better suited for this role? Conversely, should states and the federal government be left out so that the industry could develop its own standards?

Professor Eric Goldman of Santa Clara University School of Law, who is also the High Tech Law Institute Director, will keynote the symposium, and the Network Advertising Initiative will moderate the all-star panel.
