In partnership with the Illinois Data Science Initiative, the College of Law's program on Law, Behavior, and Social Science hosted the Law and Data Science Summit last month. The daylong event featured lightning talks on a variety of topics that examined the intersection between data science and the law. The summit explored how data science applies to law, looking at the promise of data science for our increased understanding of legal texts, law, and the important issues with which the law is grappling daily. It also asked how the law applies to data science, examining pervasive issues of privacy, ethics, and ownership.
Several members of the College of Law faculty gave presentations at the Summit, including conference organizers Verity Winship, Jeremy McClane, and Jennifer Robbennolt, as well as Bob Lawless, Arden Rowell, Alan Kluegel, and Stephanie Davidson. Alumna Daliah Saper '04 was also a panelist.
