The Business, Technology, and The Law of Artificial Intelligence

Catalog No.: 675

Course Description:

Pending Faculty Approval. Artificial intelligence is transforming the way that companies and organizations operate and do business. Self-learning algorithms, autonomous robots, and related technologies are increasingly carrying out tasks that once were exclusively performed by humans, creating new challenges and opportunities for the legal profession. This 2-unit seminar will explore the business, technology, and law of artificial intelligence through assigned readings and individual and group problem sets, discussion, field trips, and engagement with local experts in AI, robotics, and neural engineering. An additional 1-unit “independent study” credit can be earned based on successful completion of a multi-media, annotated legal primer on AI as it pertains to a particular technological area, or substantial progress on a coding project pertaining to AI and the law (social justice projects especially encouraged).
