U of T Legal Hackers is pleased to invite you to our first virtual panel of the year!

Join us for a discussion on the intersection between technology, human rights, and criminal justice. This will be a moderated Zoom panel with Yolanda Song, Christien Levien, and Vincent Chiao

Yolanda Song is a Toronto lawyer whose practice includes government litigation and general administrative and constitutional law. She recently published a comprehensive human rights analysis of algorithmic policing in Canada, in collaboration with the Citizen Lab and the International Human Rights Program at the University of Toronto.

Christien Levien is a Toronto criminal defence lawyer and co-founder of Legalswipe – an app designed to place legal information at the fingertips of students, community workers, educators, and the general public. Spurred by his own experience with racial profiling, Christien created Legalswipe to assist youth from low-income and racialized backgrounds in their interactions with law enforcement.

Vincent Chiao is an Associate Professor at the Faculty of Law. He has conducted research in criminal law, legal theory, and political philosophy, including the use of algorithmic decision making in criminal justice.
