Institute for Technology Law & Policy

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.

Degrees and Certifications

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.

Experiential Learning

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.

Civil Justice Data Commons

The CJDC project aims to connect the highly fragmented landscape of the civil justice system into a secure, robust repository for legal data.
