Today’s innovations are resulting in law being embedded within technology, thereby potentially creating new institutions (or fully reinvented versions of former institutions). For example, legal contracts are already being represented in code. Driverless vehicles will soon follow programmed/embedded rules within a vast network of other vehicles following those same rules. Private energy production will soon follow embedded rules for travel across networks outside of government distribution controls and regulations. How will this embedding of law within technology fundamentally change how the legal institutions governing these technologies are created, understood, and enforced? We believe our multidisciplinary approach will provide us an advanced understanding of how the law will evolve in this new and highly networked landscape.
