Fall 2007 High Tech Law Institute Events

By Eric Goldman

I realize this is a self-serving assessment, but I think we have an absolutely terrific roster of events lined up this Fall! Check out some highlights:

________

Sept. 17, 10:30am-12pm. Blogging, Scholarship, and the Bench and Bar, sponsored by the American Association of Law Schools (AALS) & the National Law Journal. This panel will discuss the effect of blogs on legal scholarship, judges and practicing lawyers. To discuss these issues, we have some top-notch bloggers (Larry Solum and Paul Butler, and I’ll be there too), Judge Berzon from the Ninth Circuit, and Cindy Cohn from the EFF. If you attend in person, you get the free CLE; alternatively, you can watch it live from your desktop via our real-time webcast. See the details here.

________

Oct. 2, 8:30am-2pm. Trust Online, co-sponsored with the Center for Science, Technology & Society, Markkula Center for Applied Ethics and Microsoft Corporation. This half-day event will gather lawyers, technologists and policy-makers to discuss how online businesses can engender trust from their users. The big name draw is Richard Clarke, but I’m equally excited to hear about some recent academic research by the always-interesting Chris Hoofnagle and Alessandro Acquisti.

________

Oct. 5, 8:45am-5:15pm. Trademark Dilution: Theoretical and Empirical Inquiries, a full-day academic conference on trademark dilution. Take a look at the schedule/speaker list and you’ll see why I’m so excited about this conference. If an all-out trademark geekfest appeals to you, this really is a can’t miss event. As a bonus, you’ll get a boatload of free CLEs.

________

Oct. 12, noon-1pm. Prof. Mike Madison, Univ. of Pittsburgh School of Law, will give a faculty workshop on the topic of “Information Governance.” This event is limited to academic faculty and staff; so please email me directly if you want to come.

________

Nov. 1, 6:30-8pm, Distinguished Lecture by the well-known and highly respected Cyberlaw Prof. Jonathan Zittrain, Oxford Internet institute, entitled “The Future of the Internet–And How to Stop It.” RSVP to Jasmine Pilgeram.

________

Nov. 5, 6-8pm. Bay Area Blawgers Roundtable at Fenwick & West’s San Francisco office. This is the second gathering of local legal bloggers, following on the very popular first gathering from March. See my recap of the first event. I’ll put out a more formal announcement later; for now, RSVP directly to me.
