The firm is proud to sponsor The Gallaway Cook Allan Prize in Law & Emerging Technology. Students taking this 400-level paper are given free rein to write about the legal and regulatory issues surrounding emerging technologies. There is no textbook for this, no model answer - legislators are grappling with the same issues as the students. We feel that the essays deserve a wider audience and are publishing here the winners and the shortlist. Essays that make the shortlist have been chosen by a panel of judges, from academia and business. Outside of the usual criteria for academic papers we have given weight to readability. We want you to engage with the essays and enjoy them.
