Evans receives prestigious five-year Co-Hire appointment by the Penn State Institute for Computational and Data Sciences

Professor Tonya M. Evans has received a prestigious five-year Co-Hire appointment by the Penn State Institute for Computational and Data Sciences to add to her current tenured appointment at Penn State Dickinson Law School in Carlisle, Pennsylvania. The appointment begins on July 1, 2022.

This joint appointment with ICDS is a major milestone in Penn State Dickinson Law’s commitment to interdisciplinary research in the Penn State system. Professor Evans’ research focuses on the legal, policy, and economic justice implications of new technologies and innovation; specifically, distributed ledger technologies, cryptocurrencies and other cryptographically secured digital assets including non-fungible tokens (NFTs), decentralized finance (DeFi), and decentralized autonomous organizations (DAOs). Legal considerations include intellectual property, regulatory frameworks, and cross-border dispute resolution mechanisms. ICDS is a vibrant community of interdisciplinary researchers working on issues of significant importance to the research community with worldwide impact.

Professor Evans has authored two forthcoming law review articles related to her interdisciplinary work: The Genesis of Creative Justice: Disintermediating Creativity, 26 Lewis & Clark Law Review 3 (2022) and De-Gentrified Black Genius: Blockchain, Copyright & the Disintermediation of Creativity, 49 Pepperdine L. Rev. 101 (2022).

She will be discussing her findings on creative and economic justice in the metaverse on an upcoming episode of PBS NewsHour and also in a Twitter Spaces event on March 4th hosted by the Wall Street Journal.

Will legal ed and the practice of law pivot to meet the #neweconomy & #futureofwork?

“Lawyers aren’t going away. But the way we work is changing.”

Today’s client and, more importantly tomorrow’s client, demands that lawyers keep pace with the #futureofwork in the #neweconomy. Here’s where I think we are and where we HAVE to go.

How do you foresee this directly impacting the legal industry?

Asked by interviewer Adam Keirstead

Dean Evans

Well, there’s a really interesting move in the legal industry to prepare lawyers to have conversations with technologists in the IT department and those who are coding to leverage the existing master contracts that we have in order to figure out ways that we can automate certain functions.

Essentially, there are master agreements underneath that lawyers do, and there’s coding the coders and IT specialists do. They need to be able to talk to each other. This is an area that’s ripe for innovation on the law side.

Lawyers won’t go away, but the way that lawyers are interacting with business people, and in terms of our advice and how we work with them is going to certainly change!
