Legal Issues/Autonomous Veh

Legal Issues Surrounding Autonomous Vehicles

In this practice simulation course, law students will work with a hypothetical liability event involving autonomous vehicles. Students will work in teams to analyze the event from the perspective of one of several involved parties (such as, for example, a driver, the OEM, the insurance companies, a parts supplier). Students will apply the existing legal and regulatory framework to the scenario to understand how that framework will impact specific parties at various stages of a legal proceeding. Students will also learn legal and regulatory subject matter related to autonomous vehicles, gain an understanding of the perspectives of various parties involved in autonomous vehicle development and deployment, and formulate and suggest changes that could be made to the industry or legal or regulatory framework in order to facilitate the broad deployment of autonomous vehicles. Students will generate written and/or oral work product as required by the relevant stages of the hypothetical legal and/or regulatory proceedings.
