The UC Davis Law Review will be celebrating its 50th volume by looking into the future and predicting how the law will adapt to rapidly emerging technology.

Panels will focus on significant technological developments and their impacts on various areas of the law, such as constitutional law, intellectual property, criminal law, and many others.
