Interdisciplinary Center for Law, Commerce and Technology

Situated in the Silicon Forest, the Center for Law, Commerce, and Technology at the Law School is a leading international center for collaborative research, teaching, and scholarship related to legal aspects of high technology. In addition, the Center devotes its resources to hosting conferences periodically on emerging issues in the areas of technology law.

Capitalizing on the University's strengths in biotechnology, computer science, medicine, business and engineering, the Center for Law, Commerce and Technology provides an interdisciplinary forum where industry, consumers, academia, and the attorneys who represent these constituencies can explore and define the issues that shape the legal environment in which technology-intensive enterprises conduct business.

The Center's missions are: to prepare law students for practice in the information age; to provide specialized training to students who will pursue careers as lawyers, policy advisors, researchers, or entrepreneurs in technology-intensive sectors; and to serve as a resource for people and organizations affected by emerging technologies.
