What intersection of law and technology interests you the most?

I am very interested in visual representation of argumentation and am keen to learn more about natural language processing to do this. I have been pursuing a mapping project that lies at one law & technology intersection.

What unique skill set or connections do you hope to teach the group?

I am good with the basic structures of argument and components of rhetoric and can relate this very directly to the structure and form of legal argument. I am comfortable with algorithmic thinking and could probably code again given the chance and some orientation. In general, I can bring enthusiasm and an ability to understand the argot of multiple (and non overlapping) discourses.


Former C++/SQL programmer. Then became a prisoner rights activist then criminal defense lawyer. Now a law professor at University of Baltimore. I study rhetoric, argument, and constitutional law.
