    Technology Law (21325). 2 units. This course will study the regulatory challenges posed by disruptive technologies. We will consider the interplay of law, technological design, norms, and the market as modalities of regulation; competing strategies for updating the law through courts, legislatures, administrative agencies, and international institutions; efforts by incumbent and newcomer industries to use the law to promote their preferred business models; and the legal implications of other political, economic, and social impacts associated with disruptive technologies. Case studies include smart phones, autonomous weapon systems, VCRs, robotics, driverless cars, cyberwarfare, the railroad, "clickwrap" contracts, social media, Big Data analytics, the Internet of Things, and 3-D printing. Self-scheduled examination or paper option. J.M. Balkin, F.E. Ard, and R. Crootof.
