Introducing Jennifer Chandler

Up to bat next is Jennifer Chandler from the University of Ottawa.

Jennifer writes in the areas of tort law, health law and cyberlaw, including discussions of network and software security. She also teaches an interesting course on 'technoprudence: legal theory in the information age.'

A previous article examined whether courts control technology or whether they simply legitimize the social acceptance of new technologies. This work is particularly relevant to our blog's current topic of 'Human Autonomy, Technology, and Law' as it queries whether courts and other legal institutions are merely passive observers of changing technologies or whether they help to shape these technologies to protect perceived values.
