Cyberspace Law Institute and Winter Working Meeting

Our Committee will hold its annual Cyberspace Law Institute and Winter Working Meeting on January 24-25, 2020 in Phoenix, Arizona. The meeting will be at the Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law at Arizona State University. This is a terrific venue, and we are grateful for the school’s support and collaboration as we put together another outstanding opportunity for professional development, networking, and friendship building.

Look out for an announcement that registration is open. (You might already have received it while the newsletter was being formatted.)

We received an abundance of excellent program proposals and are pleased to include the following topics for 6.5 hours of CLE:

  • Dysregulating the Media: The Unintentional Deregulation of American Media
  • How Emerging Technologies (including AI, Blockchain, IOT, and Deep Fakes) Are Disrupting Cybersecurity
  • Update on EU Privacy Compliance in Light of Brexit and Recent Watershed EU Decisions and Regulatory Guidance
  • Litigating Privacy: Strategies and Defenses
  • The UCC and Emerging Technologies: Key Issues Needing Your Input
  • Lawyers and Risk Management
  • Embedded Security and IP Risks in the Design, Development, and Use of AI
  • Approval of FedNow and Virtual Currency Developments
  • CCPA Compliance Update
  • How Blockchain is Changing Healthcare

While we pack a lot about the latest in cyberspace law into the CLE programs, the meeting also provides great opportunities to get to know your colleagues and relax. Included in the low $290 meeting fee are a cocktail party on Thursday, two breakfasts, Friday lunch, and the CLE. We also have a fun, casual dinner on Friday evening (separate ticket required). It’s optional, but almost everyone will be there and spouses are welcome. Other options include a Thursday afternoon hike on nearby Saddleback Mountain (more details to come) and an informal lunch on Saturday for those who want to stay and soak up the Arizona sun for another hour or two. 

We look forward to seeing you in Phoenix!
