A symposium presented by Entertainment Law Society at UC Irvine: Experts from the legal, technological, business, media, entertainment, and government sectors will all come together at this symposium to discuss the consequences of legal decisions on access to entertainment in the internet age. The panelists at this symposium will explore questions that directly affect the way consumers access entertainment, how artists and entertainers create content, and the future landscape of entertainment and information distribution.
Thank you Christina Gagnier for stopping by our class yesterday! Wei Deng reports: “Christina shared with us her opinions on current issues such as online privacy, technology literacy, and revenge pornography. IPAT student Lauren Wong asked Christina a question regarding how to build a boutique tech law firm. In response, Christina shared with us her vision in building a public-interest law service as well as some of the encountered challenges. IPAT student Rahul Sajnani asked Christina about her experience running for the US Congress. At the conclusion of the visit, IPAT student Donna Woo asked Christina what law students could do to raise the public awareness of technology literacy and to promote the literacy in our communities. We really enjoyed Christina’s visit and look forward to working with Christina in the future.”
Christina and her partner Stephanie Margossian have created a fascinating case study of how to build a practice at the intersection of technology and public policy–while working *for* the public interest. Thank you for joining us!
