Georgetown Law offers a wide range of courses that prepare lawyers for the increasingly complex legal and policy debates surrounding communication technology and intellectual property rights.
Students can also gain valuable experience in the field through clinics and practicum courses in areas of technology and privacy law.
Our faculty includes top experts in the law and regulation of our increasingly information-based society, including nationally-recognized scholars in areas such as privacy, pharmaceutical patents, trademark law, copyright theory, the protection of children online and the ways that technology is changing the practice of law itself. With experience in key posts at federal agencies and in the private and nonprofit sectors, our faculty also brings a real-world perspective to the classroom.
At Georgetown Law’s Institute for Public Representation, a public interest law firm and clinical education program, students are intensely involved in timely cases at the intersection of law and technology. Their work includes preparing filings and presentations to federal agencies such as the Federal Communications Commission and Federal Trade Commission and filing briefs in the U.S Court of Appeals.
