The NKU Chase Law + Informatics Institute provides critical interdisciplinary research regarding law, regulation and industry practice as it is applied across complex information systems, emerging technology and all areas of law. While not limited to any legal field, the institute emphasizes intellectual property law, privacy, business and securities laws, international laws, and evidentiary rules because the creation, acquisition, aggregation, security, manipulation and exploitation of data have the largest legal and societal consequences in these fields.
