Brooklyn Law School‘s Trade Secrets Institute will hold a symposium on Keeping Secrets from the Public on February 15, 2018. “Trade secrets now play a central role in both the economy and public policy. Trade secret enforcement has grown to straddle the boundary between civil and criminal law. Meanwhile, algorithmic decision-making – often including secret proprietary code – is widely used in criminal prosecution and in everyday government services. This two-part discussion of recent developments in trade secret law will feature expert panelists who will examine the shifting balances between civil and criminal enforcement, and between secrecy and transparency in government.” Registration deadline is February 9, 2018.
