UW Research

Law, Technology & Arts



The Law, Technology & Arts Group (LTA) is an integrated academic unit that delivers education, research, and outreach on the law’s role in promoting and regulating innovation in technology and arts.

Both the UW and Seattle have well developed technology and arts communities that already intersect in significant ways. Seattle is a “destination city” and magnet for the creative class who often move seamlessly between technology and the arts. The practicing bar is highly sophisticated with many firms specializing in emerging growth tech companies across the spectrum of the life sciences, information technology, and new media/digital arts. LTA is deeply connected to this community through its directors, staff, and adjunct faculty.
