Law and technology

Integrating knowledge; building community

Technology intersects nearly every aspect of life in today's global society, and the law is no exception. Some of the links are clear—cybersecurity and intellectual property law come to mind—while other fields, such as criminal law, may seem less apparent.

The Law & Technology Program brings together a wide range of expertise from throughout the Maurer School of Law to create an integrated platform for research, academic collaborations, and student experiences. In addition, the Program seeks to build a community of like-minded scholars around this emerging field by sponsoring events that advance the important nexus between law and technology in its many facets.

Maurer's Law & Technology courses have not only broadened my intellectual perspective but have been instrumental in shaping my professional skillset.
