25th Annual BTLJ-BCLT Symposium with panellist Natali Helberger on Friday April 16, 6 p.m. CET

April 14, 2021 - April 15, 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.

Natali Helberger will take part in Panel 3: Platform Liability Rules as Technology Policy Levers at Friday, April 16, 5:00 pm CET.
