Have you ever wondered how algorithms and other automated decision-making systems can adversely impact people, particularly in low-income communities? Because we live in an increasingly "datafied" society, these technological systems raise profound issues of civil rights, human rights, and economic justice. Please join us as University of Baltimore Venable Professor of Law and Data & Society Fellow, Michele Gilman, reviews how we-as future lawyers-can help our clients resist the adverse impacts of data-centric technologies and engage as stakeholders in the adoption and implementation of algorithmic systems in a wide-range of practice areas, including consumer law, family law, public benefits, education, workers' rights, and immigration surveillance.
