Jordan Cohen, Rising 2L, Receives First Place in William & Mary Law Artificial Intelligence Legal Issues Paper Competition

The 1st prize winner in the William & Mary Law Artificial Intelligence Legal Issues Paper Competition went to rising 2L, Jordan Cohen, for his paper “Lights, Camera, AI: Artificial Intelligence Authorship and Copyright Ownership in the Entertainment Industry of Tomorrow.” This is an international competition that asked students to submit papers setting forth novel legal issues posed by these rapidly expanding technologies.

“I believe that FIU Law’s approach to legal education fosters curiosity and challenges students to consider issues that are likely to face us in the years to come. This semester, the Legal Skills & Values program assigned 1Ls an appellate simulation that required us to deal with the first amendment and social media,” said Cohen. “We are surrounded by a faculty–including Professors Thomas Baker and Ila J. Klion–committed to developing our appreciation of legal scholarship and writing. I’m confident that FIU Law is preparing my colleagues and I to become future attorneys ready to solve the legal questions that new technology will pose, and ready to embrace a world of novel legal challenges that await us.”
