Arent Fox Automotive practice leader Aaron Jacoby will speak at the Los Angeles World Affairs Council’s “Future of the Automobile” conference, which will be held at the Peterson Automotive Museum on Thursday, May 3 in Los Angeles, California.

The conference will bring together leading voices from car manufacturers, technology companies, and regulatory agencies for a day-long series of talks and panel discussions on one of the biggest technological, economic, and social changes facing the US and the world in the coming years.
