     Topeka, Kan. – The Washburn University School of Law's Robert J. Dole Center for Law and Government in partnership with the Washburn Law Journal will host "Emerging Technology: Implementation and Regulation." The symposium is Thursday, February 22, 2018, from 9 a.m. – 4:30 p.m., at the Bradbury Thompson Alumni Center on the Washburn University campus. This event is free and open to the public. The event sponsors will provide a boxed lunch for those who register by February 19 at http://washburnlaw.edu/form/emergingtechnology/
