Fordham Conference on “Law and the Information Society”

Fordham University School of Law is hosting a conference on “Law and the Information Society” on April 7-8.

Date(s): 04.07.05 | Thu — 04.08.05 | Fri
Time: 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. and 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.
Location: James B.M. McNally Amphitheatre, Fordham University School of Law
Sponsor: Fordham Law Review

This Conference brings together a group of leading academic scholars to consider topics of information law and policy in the context of societal values. Rather than focus specifically on one area such as privacy or intellectual property, the conference plans a broad examination across a range of related areas that will make an important contribution to the literature with topical relevance and enduring merit. The chosen issues are:

  • The Co-existence of Privacy and Security
  • Information Regulation and the Freedom of Expression
  • Responsibility and Liability on the Internet
  • Intellectual Property and Public Values
  • Market Regulation and Innovation
  • Information Technology and International Trade

Panel speakers include Helen Nissenbaum (my advisor), Daniel Solove (I review his book, The Digital Person: Technology and Privacy in the Information Age, here), Orin Kerr, Beth Noveck, and Susan Crawford.
