25th Annual BTLJ-BCLT Symposium- Lex Informatica: The Formulation of Information Policy Rules through Technology (DAY 2)
April 16, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm
April 15th – 16th, 2021
In digital networked environments, laws and regulations are not the only sources of rulemaking. Technical standards, the configuration of software, the architecture of hardware, and industry articulations of best practices also affect how information flows are permitted or forbidden. Joel Reidenberg’s prescient article, Lex Informatica: The Formulation of Information Policy Rules Through Technology, published in the Texas Law Review in 1998, urged policymakers to understand, consciously recognize, and encourage the evolution of these extra-legal influences to achieve optimal public policy outcomes. This symposium will honor the legacy of Reidenberg’s deep insights about Lex Informatica as policy levers and will explore respects in which Lex Informatica is working in the public interest and ways in which technology regulations could be improved.
