One of my courses this semester is Technology Law: Law of the Newly Possible. This seminar, at the University of South Carolina School of Law, examines how law responds to, incorporates, and affects innovation. Whereas my previous seminar at Stanford Law School focused on the legal aspects of vehicle automation, this course is broader. It considers a range of currently emerging technologies as well as historic inventions that offer insights into addressing key public and private tensions. Because of interest in this course, I am posting the weekly reading and writing assignments to newlypossible.org. Materials are excerpted from source documents, academic and technical literature, and current drafts of bills and standards.
The Center for Internet and Society at Stanford Law School is a leader in the study of the law and policy around the Internet and other emerging technologies.
