The Smart Law for Smart Cities Symposium explored the regulatory landscape for potentially disruptive advances in urban governance arising from innovative technology, sustainability, and “big data.”  The Symposium focused on how contemporary urban life is marked and shaped by technology, as well as the law and regulatory complexities that are arising from this technological transformation.  The Symposium included panels examining changes to both the physical and non-physical landscape in urban life resulting from such changes.
