Emerging Technology, Law and Ethics
(Runtime 1:56:40)

Technology is growing at an exponential rate. The advances made over the past century have been eclipsed by the accellerated growth in just the past few years. Genetics, nanotechnology, surveillance, and virtual realms are the future of our world, and the courts have a unique challenge before them as they attempt to define the new legalities these technologies have created.

Join Dr. Gary Marchant as he discusses these new frontiers, examining what they are, what they mean for humanity, and most importantly what they mean for the future of the judiciary.
