2019-2020 Symposia

Law, Language, and Technology

The Journal is thrilled to announce that the theme of the 2019-2020 Symposia is Law, Language, and Technology. Language is the raw material that comprises the law—whether that law take the form of an opinion, a statute, or a constitution. The language employed in a particular legal document—and how that language is interpreted—is the essence of legal practice. Technology is providing new lenses through which legal professionals can view and understand the intersection of law and language. Our Symposia has invited top scholars to publish and present pieces related to the theme of law, language, and technology and is being co-sponsored by Professor David Blankfein-Tabachnick, Professor James Chen, and Professor Daniel Barnhizer.
