Drones, Driverless Cars & AI: The legal challenges surrounding emerging tech

  • 2237 Rayburn House Office Building (map)

Date: March 22, 2019 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm
Venue: Rayburn House Office Building, Room 2237
Division: Congressional Civil Justice Academy


From tech companies to automobile manufacturers, driverless cars are the next big thing. But who’s responsible when a driverless car is involved in an accident? Should it be the occupants of the vehicle or its owner? The car’s manufacturer or the software developer? A number of the companies working in this field have announced that they would accept responsibility because they all seem to anticipate fewer accidents. But will that change as the technology evolves? How will courts respond? And what role is there for legislative action?

Join us as our panel of experts discuss these and related questions.

This Congressional Civil Justice Academy briefing will feature:

Andrew Kloster
Center for the Study of The Administrative State, Antonin Scalia Law School

Peter V. Nelson
K & L Gates

Greg Conko (Moderator)
Law & Economics Center

Lunch will be served.
