Digital Democracy: The Threat and Promise of Technology for Democratic Institutions

With the reach of big data, tech companies and cyber warfare expanding, a UVA Law conference will examine how technology is threatening democratic institutions and what the law is doing about it. The event features a lineup of tech company insiders, government experts and academics on the frontlines of the issue, including keynote speaker Jack M. Balkin, a Yale Law School professor who founded and directs the Yale Information Society Project. The all-day event is sponsored by the Center for Democracy & Technology and the student-run Law, Innovation, Security & Technology, with support from several other Law School student organizations. The conference kicks off at 8:30 a.m. with an introduction by Dean Risa Goluboff. Panel topics include trustbusting in the internet age, an author panel focused on technology, the potential impact of big data to reinforce social and racial biases, and national security and the information-industrial complex. Representatives from Amazon, Uber, the CIA, the ACLU, Lawfare, Mozilla, The Washington Post, the Center for Democracy & Technology, Color of Change, the Electronic Privacy Information Center and several law schools are scheduled to speak at the event. The conference will conclude with a networking reception. Register

The Hard Work of Social Justice: A Conversation With Women of August 11-12

This event will discuss the work of social justice activism and focus on Aug. 11 and 12, 2017, and on women who countered the terrorism of those days before, then and since. The first two hours will be a viewing of the film, “Charlottesville,” which documents the events leading up to and including Aug.11-12. The second half will be a panel discussion with women activists, followed by participation from the audience. Attendees who cannot attend the film screening can still fully appreciate the panel discussion that will follow. In between the film and panel will be a presentation of the annual Gregory H. Swanson Award, given to a law student who exemplifies “courage, perseverance and a commitment to justice.” The theme of this year’s University-wide commemoration of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. is “Women in the Movement.” Food and soft drinks will be provided around 6 p.m. at the conclusion of the film. Panelists include Marissa K. Blair, 4th Street survivor and activist; Susan D. Bro (Heather Heyer’s mother), president of the Heather Heyer Foundation; Zyahna Bryant, activist and organizer; Anne M. Coughlin, Lewis F. Powell, Jr., Professor of Law; Rachel Schmelkin, associate rabbi, Congregation Beth Israel; and UVA Law student Adele Stichel ’19. Professor Dayna Bowen Matthew ’87, William L. Matheson and Robert M. Morgenthau Distinguished Professor of Law, will moderate.
