Julie Cohen Book Talk

ACS joined with the Knight First Amendment Institute to host a conversation with Prof. Julie Cohen of Georgetown Law about her new book, Between Truth and Power: The Legal Constructions of Informational Capitalism. Prof. David Pozen of Columbia Law interviewed her about the book, which explores the relationships between legal institutions and political and economic transformation. Systematically examining struggles over the conditions of information flow and the design of information architectures and business models, she argues that as law is enlisted to help produce the profound economic and sociotechnical shifts that have accompanied the emergence of the informational economy, it is too is transforming in fundamental ways.
