At the Auto Show


MSU Law Professor Nicholas Wittner met Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, an MSU Law alumna, at the 2019 North American International Auto Show at Cobo Center in Detroit, and talked with her about MSU Law’s contributions to the field of autonomous vehicle regulation. A Wayne Law graduate, Wittner served for 20 years as an assistant general counsel for the Nissan North America Legal Department and previously was an executive attorney at General Motors for 11 years. He has chaired, served as a keynote speaker, and moderated programs on autonomous vehicles and other advanced automated technologies, most recently at the Autonomous Vehicle Safety Regulation World Congress, and is a leading expert on legal issues involving these and related technologies. He has also served as faculty adviser to the Law College’s Symposium on “The Transformation of Transportation:  Autonomous Vehicles, Google Cars, and Vehicles Talking to Each Other.”
