NKU Chase Law + Informatics Institute
The NKU Chase Law + Informatics Institute (www.lawandinformatics.org) provides critical interdisciplinary research, coursework, and community outreach on issues involving media and information systems and emerging technologies across all areas of law. The Institute works with all fields within the legal profession to explore the legal and societal consequences resulting from creation, acquisition, aggregation, security, manipulation, and exploitation of data.
The NKU Chase Law + Informatics Institute explores the collection of rules, principles and regulations involving the collection, classification, storage, retrieval, and dissemination of recorded knowledge. Through courses, symposia, publications, and workshops, the NKU Chase Law + Informatics Institute encourages thoughtful public discourse on the regulation and use of information systems, business innovation, and the development of best business practices regarding data systems in business, health care, media, entertainment, and the public sector. The Institute prepares law students and practitioners to navigate the labyrinth of laws, regulations, business practices, and public policy implications of informatics. As a result, they will cross traditional boundaries to solve problems created as new technologies, demands, and professions emerge.
"I walk into class, and I take the Wall Street Journal or the New York Times and say solve it. These are issues that have no answers. There is no book that's been written on how to solve these problems and so it's a collaboration between the faculty and the students to build new strategies and see if those strategies really work."
