Legal Engineering

Zargham joins Dazza to explore the concept of "legal engineering" from a range of perspectives. Both engineers and lawyers are specially trained professionals who apply their expertise, ostensibly, on behalf of society according to codes of ethics. Both disciplines work within the boundaries of standard procedures but must also exercise judgment regarding particular circumstances. Engineers manage technical complexity whereas lawyers manage legal complexity, but those two domains are becoming increasingly intertwined.

Host: Dazza Greenwood, Executive Director, law.MIT.edu
