2022 Journal of Law & Innovation Symposium

January 28th, 2022

Innovation and Criminal Justice

Technological advancement continues to impact every aspect of the criminal justice system, from crowdsourced surveillance to the use of algorithms in sentencing decisions. These innovations have the power to advance justice and efficiency or exacerbate existing legal and societal flaws. It is more important than ever for us to examine technological innovation and confront its impact on criminal justice. At its fifth annual symposium, the Journal of Law & Innovation (JLI) seeks to explore several of these issues within the topic of Innovation and Criminal Justice.

  • Gerald Adams, Editor-in-Chief
  • David Abrams, JLI Faculty Advisor
