Please join us on March 27th at lunchtime in JG 102A for a panel discussion on tech and human rights. Our distinguished panel will discuss the introduction of AI and algorithms in legal contexts ranging from online platforms to political campaigns and criminal justice, and how lawyers in any field need to be aware of the resulting challenges to equal treatment, privacy and transparency. The panelists will discuss how technology presents new opportunities for human rights advocacy - and give their best tips on how to navigate an increasingly technical legal profession. 

The discussion will feature Cynthia Conti-Cook, Staff Attorney at The Legal Aid Society and Fellow at Data & Society, Peter Micek, General Counsel at Access Now and Adjunct Professor at Columbia University SIPA, Mutale Nkonde, Policy Advisor and Fellow at Data & Society, Natalie Rea, Staff Attorney at The Legal Aid Society and President of The Court-Access Project, and Aiden Slavin, a consultant, journalist and Innovation Fellow at Fordham University. 

This event is organized as part of our Human Rights Week programming. Non-pizza lunch will be served.
