Thomson Reuters initiative to support study of information law
A program that aims to foster research and intellectual community in the burgeoning area of information law — the Thomson Reuters Initiative on Law and Technology — has been established as part of the Yale Information Society Project (ISP) at Yale Law School.
The initiative will support two Thomson Reuters fellows who will work closely with Yale faculty and staff studying cutting-edge issues at the intersection of law, technology and media; funding for workshops, a speaker series, and a conference focusing on these issues; and support for the leadership of the ISP. It was established with a grant from Thomson Reuters.
“We face a world that is just beginning to realize the potential impact of information law and policy,” said Yale Law School Dean Robert C. Post. “Thomson Reuters has given the Yale ISP the ability to remain at the forefront of these important discussions. We are thrilled with the opportunities this grant presents.”
“As the leading provider of legal research, critical news, information and software to legal professionals, this initiative provides Thomson Reuters an opportunity to engage with innovative thinkers to continue providing the best ideas and insights on the implications of law and technology to the global legal community,” said Thomas H. Glocer, CEO of Thomson Reuters and himself a graduate of Yale Law School.
