Doris Estelle Long: Professor and Chair of the Intellectual Property, Information Technology and Privacy Group at The John Marshall Law School in Chicago. JD, Cornell. It isn’t often that the organizer of a conference has the opportunity to thank in print the participants who helped create such a vivid atmosphere of debate and scholarship that marked the Information Convergence Conference held at The John Marshall Law School in November 2007. As the articles included in this special issue demonstrate, the level and variety of discourse both among the speakers, and among the audience, was energizing to say the least.

Leslie Ann Reis: Assistant Professor and Director, Center for Information Technology and Privacy Law, The John Marshall Law School in Chicago. JD, The John Marshall Law School. Since its creation in 1983, the Center for Information Technology and Privacy Law has been a place of convergence – where law and technology combined to provide a unique educational opportunity for students to develop a marketable expertise for today’s technology-driven world.
