Sovereignty: The Race to Regulate, Putting Consumers First as Communication Technology Emerges

2000 H Street NW, Washington, DC 20052

February 22 , 2018

Join The George Washington University Law School’s Federal Communications Law Journal at its 2nd Annual Symposium. The title this year is Sovereignty: The Race to Regulate, Putting Consumers First as Communications Technology Emerges.

This year’s theme examines who would be better suited to regulate emerging technology and the related industries. Many states have recently passed laws regulating biometrics, driverless vehicles, and data breaches. Is Congress or the federal government better suited for this role? Conversely, should states and the federal government be left out so that the industry could develop its own standards?

Eric Goldman, Professor of Law and Co-director, High Tech Law Institute, Santa Clara University School of Law, will deliver the keynote address at the symposium, and Grant Nelson, Counsel, Compliance and Technology, Network Advertising Initiative will moderate the panel.
