In recent decades, technology has reshaped every aspect of modern life, evolving more rapidly than law and policy. The Tech Institute’s mission is to close the gap between law, policy, and technology by training students, educating policymakers, and informing the public about the key challenges and opportunities that arise at the intersection of law and technology.
We train the next generation of lawyers and lawmakers with deep expertise in technology law and policy; we provide non-partisan insights to policymakers on issues relating to new and emerging technologies; we foster interdisciplinary approaches to solving technology law and policy problems; and we identify and create opportunities for technology to improve access to justice.
Our Institute provides a uniquely valuable forum in Washington, DC for policymakers, academics and technologists to discuss the most pressing issues and opportunities in technology law today.

In today’s legal landscape, the well-trained lawyer needs to understand the ways that technology and law increasingly intersect — and be comfortable with the digital tools that are shaping twenty-first century practice.
More than ever, lawyers and policymakers need a deep understanding of technology. Georgetown Law developed two new academic programs, a Master of Laws (LL.M) in Technology Law & Policy and a first-of-its kind, Master of Law and Technology (M.L.T.) for non-lawyers.
Georgetown Law students are not only familiar with contemporary policy debates; they also learn how to code, have written legislative proposals, and submitted briefs to the Federal Circuit, FCC, and FTC.
