The Future of Automotive Technology in Litigation

A look at electrical vehicles, power electronics, autonomous vehicles, in-vehicle networks, automotive safety and cybersecurity

Event scheduled for Thursday, September 17th at 1 p.m. Eastern

Our society is going through a powerful shift as we move from gas-guzzling vehicles to electron-guzzlers. Both established automotive manufacturers and suppliers, as well as start-ups, are developing technologies at break-neck speeds to create the vehicles that will become the standards for the coming age. Along the way, patents will be filed and challenged, and technologies will be founded, stolen, and borrowed.

Prof. Mehrdad (Mark) Ehsani and Prof. Juan Pimentel have front-row seats to the ongoing show and look forward to discussing what they’ve observed so far, and what is coming up, as the international free-for-all continues.

Attorneys: come with your questions ready!
