Featured Speaker


Jessica Uguccioni

Jessica Uguccioni, Lead Lawyer, Automated Vehicles Review for the U.K. Law Commission, will be discussing "Automated Driving Laws: Hands On, Hands Off, and How to Tell the Difference. A U.K. Perspective."  The Law Commission of England and Wales is an independent statutory body specialized in advising government regarding law reform matters. The U.K.’s Department for Transport has asked the Law Commissions of England and Wales, alongside its Scottish counterpart, the Scottish Law Commission, to review the law relating to automated vehicles to ensure the U.K. legal framework is fit for purpose in accommodating the safe deployment of automated vehicles and their use as part of public transport networks and on-demand passenger services. The review will report by 2021.  The Law Commissions are independent of government, yet will be working closely with CCAV (the U.K. Government’s Centre for Connected and Autonomous Vehicles) in developing its policy proposals and CCAV’s aims will inform the Law Commission’s review. The review will be heavily based on consultation, and reflect an iterative approach to policy-making.
