It’s always great to get some home-field support for a first time event, and so I’m terrifically excited to officially announce today that Berkeley Law’s very own Center for Law and Technology has come on board as a conference partner with NELIC for April!
If you’re not familiar with the work of BCLT, you should definitely check it out. The center plays host to some of the biggest intellectual titans currently going in the IP and technology policy space, and runs a fantastic series of conferences and speakers on the intersections between the law and a sprawling universe of issues in privacy, electronic commerce, digital entertainment, cleantech, telecommunications regulation, and beyond.
We couldn’t have picked a better crew of folks to team up with (thanks again to Robert Barr for giving us a shot), excited to have them with us in April!
It’s been a crazy weekend of developments here at NELIC conference planning headquarters, but I just wanted to take a moment to jot out a quick note this morning to announce that Harvard University’s Law Lab has come on board as a sponsor for NELIC in April!
The Law Lab is the brainchild project of our friends over at the Berkman Center for Internet and Society, and is affiliated with the Kauffman Foundation. The project is devoted to investigating and experimenting with the various forces — evolutionary, social, psychological, neurological and economic — that shape the function of the law. They’ve worked on a variety of projects that touch upon the legal technology aspects of NELIC, including an open-source project to easily manage Vermont’s virtual LLC’s, and the streamlined automation of contract term sheets for entrepreneurs. We’re thrilled to have them aboard.
In any case, much more to come out this week, including more speakers, sponsors, and we’ll be opening up registration on Wednesday! Stay tuned!
