As the eyes of the nation increasingly focus on improving the criminal justice system, the possibilities and risks of emerging technologies are affecting all aspects of the administration of justice. The Quattrone Center for the Fair Administration of Justice at Penn Law hosts an interdisciplinary group of nationally recognized thought leaders in criminal justice, computer technology, and law on May 12-13 to discuss such questions as:

  • How is technology is changing the administration of justice?
  • What are areas of excitement and concern?
  • What can criminal justice learn from other systems about deploying technology in ways that will improve our ability to prevent errors?
