The 2021 Thrower Symposium will explore various issues surrounding the technology industry today by bringing together a diverse and experienced array of speakers with different perspectives on key topics and solutions. In an era where technology has become ever-present in our lives, we will analyze some of the leading issues facing the technology industry, with a particular focus on Big Tech. The Symposium will tackle complex, controversial, and nuanced issues related to data privacy, the Fourth Amendment, and antitrust. We will explore innovative approaches to tackling these issues, and we will explore how the relationship between technology and the law can and should change.
