The series continued in 2018 with a presentation on "The Dead Sea Scrolls' Live Copyright Controversy" by David Nimmer, of counsel to Irell & Manella LLP, Professor from Practice at UCLA School of Law, Distinguished Scholar at the Berkeley Center for Law and Technology, and a member of the Jewish Law Institute Advisory Board. The presentation was hosted by LexisNexis in New York City.
