“The Future of Big Tech”
April 26 | 6 p.m.

Inspired by our beloved courtroom-style program, The Counselors, Ed Duckers and Pedro Irigonegaray return – this time as mentors to KU undergraduate students! Students will cross examine expert witnesses to debate the future of Big Tech by addressing the resolution: Antitrust laws should be expanded to regulate anticompetitive practices by big tech corporations.

This pilot program is made possible by funds raised during our 2022 One Day One KU initiative to promote new student opportunities at the Dole Institute.
