Symposium on Personalized Law

4/27
Add to Calendar 2018-04-27 08:30:00 2018-04-28 11:45:00 Symposium on Personalized Law

With the rise of big data, the costs associated with creating and administering personalized legal rules tailored to specific individuals or circumstances have decreased significantly. Rules that currently apply uniformly—property rights; standards of care; default and mandatory rules in contract law; disclosure mandates; sentencing rules; tax laws; and legal procedures—now face the possibility of becoming personalized.  The Symposium on Personalized Law will feature diverse expert viewpoints on the value, feasibility, and implementation of personalization in various legal areas. Panelists will discuss whether a personalized system is moral or democratic, how such a system could be implemented, and the benefits and drawbacks of shifting from uniform to personalized law. Others will explore how the increased granularity of legal norms would affect the legal system as a whole, whether personalization will make the legal system more efficient, fair, or equal, or instead serve to undermine the legitimacy of the legal system and infringe on individual privacy.

This event is free and open to the public, but seating may be subject to registration. For the list of speakers, the schedule of events, and to register please visit the University of Chicago Law Review webpage for the Symposium.
