The Tech, Law and Security (TLS) program at American University’s Washington College of Law is excited to announce its new series, At the Intersection, featuring in-depth conversations with senior leaders and experts from across industry, government and academia on important topics at the intersection of technology, law and security. 

TLS launched in February 2020 to tackle unresolved and cutting-edge legal and policy issues posed by emerging technology, to generate and disseminate innovative policy proposals and solutions, and to engage and train the leaders of tomorrow. At the Intersection will further this work through unvarnished discussions with experienced practitioners, helping to inform the American public, policymakers and the WCL community about critical issues that are impacting our everyday lives.
