The event included a screening of a new video, now posted on YouTube, that was directed by College of Informatics undergraduate Kyle Breitenstein.The video reflects two exciting aspects of our partnerships, said the institute’s director, Jon Garon, a professor at Chase.The partnership highlights the close collaboration between the College of Law and the College of Informatics.
