Event Details

Presented by the Yale Information Society Project

Modern technology enables crimes to be documented and viewed contemporaneously or soon after. This technology creates jurisdictional and authenticity challenges but also opportunities for individuals who are not even physically present to become aware of emergencies and to provide assistance. This presentation will explore some of these situations and consider what, if any, affirmative duties third parties should shoulder in those contexts.
