The University of Michigan Law School and Mcity are set to announce the launch of the Michigan Journal of Law and Mobility, dedicated to the complex legal issues at the intersection of mobility transformation and law.
The announcement is scheduled for today with representatives of Gov. Rick Snyder and the Michigan Council on Future Mobility, from the Planet M space at the Intelligent Transportation Society’s annual meeting in Detroit.
The digital, first-of-its-kind journal will draw on the expertise of faculty and researchers across the U-M community.
“We were pleased to work with Governor Snyder and to lead the initiative to create the Journal,” said Law School Dean Mark West, the Nippon Professor of Law.
“We look forward to collaborating with Mcity and scholars throughout the university and beyond to build the go-to public resource addressing the complex web of legal issues relating to connected and automated vehicles and new mobility concepts.”
The journal’s editorial board will be led by Daniel A. Crane, the Fredrick Paul Furth, Sr. Professor of Law, and will include Carrie Morton, deputy director of Mcity; Kyle D. Logue, Douglas A. Kahn Collegiate Professor of Law; Bryce Pilz, director of licensing in the Office of Technology Transfer; and Anuj Kumar Pradhan, a researcher at the U-M Transportation Research Institute.
The journal’s initiatives will also encompass a speaker series focused on timely topics in law and mobility transformation and an annual conference co-organized with Mcity.
