Robots Take Over University of Washington School of Law
posted by Ryan Calo
I recently returned from a two-day conference at Stanford Law School on robotics and the law to find that robots had, in my absence, taken over my own law school. Setting aside my thirty-student (15 law, 15 engineering) robotics and the law seminar, my colleague Lea Vaughn is using a telepresence company as the quarter-long case study in her employment law class. Bill Covington’s tech policy clinic has a dozen students working on driverless car and drone legislation. Our entrepreneurial law clinic is helping a robotics start up think about product liability. And our law review is hosting a symposium on law and artificial intelligence in March 2014 (including a contribution by Concurring Opinions’ own Frank Pasquale and Danielle Citron). It is increasingly clear to me that I will have to buy this t-shirt.
