Julie Cohen’s Between Truth and Power is, as Orly Lobel writes, a “dazzling tour de force” that “asks us to consider the new ways powerful actors extract valuable resources for gain and dominance.” As she has done so frequently, Cohen takes an incredibly complex story and weaves together a comprehensive narrative that changes the entire framing of legal questions. Agree or disagree with her diagnoses, no one who seriously engages this book will ever think about regulation in the information economy the same way.
In January 2020 (seemingly a lifetime ago, given what 2020 would bring), we gathered leading thinkers about the governance of new technologies at Notre Dame Law School and spent a day reflecting on the book and considering its implications across a range of areas. This symposium edition includes three essays that derive from those conversations, each focusing on just one of the many threads from that day.
