The “Law, Technology, and the Organization of Work” symposium will take place from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Friday, March 2, in the John K. Pruellage Courtroom, Scott. Hall.
The free symposium features top experts in employment law from across the country and the globe. The symposium is open to the public and 5.9 MO CLE (Continuing Legal Education) credits are available for Missouri attorneys.
As technology creates change in our lives, it is now ever-more important to think about the ways in which we work, how we think about work, and how work will be regulated.
Including crowdwork, on-demand platforms, people analytics, big data, 3-D printing, and other technologies, these new modalities of digitalization challenge both our ethics and our currently existing regulatory structures for labor. These issues are increasingly global, as many of these technologies are not restricted by national boundaries.
This symposium will endeavor to think forward on the changes these technologies will engender and the ways in which firms and workers are structuring their new working relationships.
The full schedule of symposium events and list of speakers is available here.
The symposium is sponsored by the Wefel Center for Employment Law and the Law Journal.
