Colleen V. Chien

Professor of Law

The Business, Law, Technology, and Policy of Artificial Intelligence

Certificate(s): High Tech Law

Course Description:

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 class 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.

Class Notes:

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 class 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. For about 1/3 of the weeks, we will only meet once (and therefore will have a consolidated class) to support outside speakers and related special events. Some of these consolidated classes will run through the lunch hour on Monday (off-schedule classes  will be taped to accommodate students with conflicts). A select group of students in the class will work closely with Professor Chien on tech and social justice and automation in lieu of doing a final paper or exam. Approved IP LLM course.
