ANN ARBOR, Mich. – Jennifer Dukarski, Butzel attorney, shareholder and leader of the firm’s Connected and Autonomous Mobility Team, will be featured during the Automotive News Congress on September 12, 2023 in Detroit. The global event series brings together the auto industry community to share ideas, insights and inspiration. This year’s event will focus on navigating the future of electrification, infrastructure and sustainability.
She will participate in a panel discussion titled, “Liability of ADAS and Autonomy,” along with Martin Fischer, president, ZF North America and a member of the Board of Management ZF Group, Phil Koopman, associate professor, Carnegie Mellon University and Pete Bigelow, director of mobility coverage, Automotive News. Autonomous driving opens up a new front in liability and litigation. The panel program will discuss who is at fault when the robot gets in a crash – the car owner, the car builder, the tech supplier?

Dukarski has become a national leader in legal issues facing emerging automotive technology including challenging intellectual property issues surrounding data, artificial intelligence and automated systems.
A self-titled “recovering engineer,” Dukarski was named one of the 30 Women Defining the Future of Technology in January 2020 by Warner Communications for her innovative thoughts and contributions to the tech industry.
