"Imagining the Legal Landscape: Technology and the Law in 2030"

Curious about robot police, selective procreation, the end of cybersecurity, total life recording devices, or virtual-reality crimes? These are just a few of the fun and interesting topics discussed in a new symposium held by UCLA's Program on Understanding Law, Science, and Evidence, or PULSE. 

Here's the symposium description:

Held at UCLA School of Law on April 15, 2016, Imagining the Legal Landscape was a day of vibrant, wide-ranging, interdisciplinary discussion about the future of law and technology. Each participant prepared a short essay imagining a future scientific or technological change that will have meaningful legal implications by 2030. Participants then discussed these future issues together throughout the day. Topics ranged from big data to robotic police, from offspring selection to virtual reality, from perfect surveillance to total life recording devices.

The papers were published by UCLA Law Review Discourse and are available here.
