Pitt Law Professor Michael Madison featured on Legal Scholar Podcast

Pitt Law Professor Michael J. Madison discussed his article "Fair Play: Notes on the Algorithmic Soccer Referee," which will be published in the Vanderbilt Journal of Entertainment & Technology Law. Madison begins by explaining how the rules of soccer or "football" give the referee a degree of discretion absent from other professional sports and observes that the introduction of video playback is changing how the rules of soccer are administered. 

This episode was hosted by Brian L. Frye, Spears-Gilbert Professor of Law at the University of Kentucky College of Law. Listen here.
