This is an interdisciplinary seminar on law and technology scholarship. The seminar is organized as a scholarly workshop, with scholars from Berkeley and elsewhere submitting new and forthcoming articles and attending class to present and discuss their articles. Students read and comment (in writing and in discussion) on the scholars’ articles. Through this process, students gain familiarity with legal scholarship and cutting-edge technology law issues while developing writing and analytical skills.

The course requirements are to prepare a series of brief written comments on presented papers, to participate actively in discussion, and to serve as a discussion leader for at least one session. Topics will include intellectual property, privacy, and emerging technologies. For example, in past semesters, scholars have discussed work on patents, copyrights, social media influencing, law and emojis, robot cops, automated trucking, CRISPR, and other technology law topics.

The class meets over lunch time to accommodate scholars attending the workshop. Lunch will be served.

Requirements Satisfaction:

This is an Option 1 class; two Option 1 classes fulfill the J.D. writing requirement.

Exam Notes: (None) Class requires a series of papers, assignments, or presentations throughout the semester
Course Category: Intellectual Property and Technology Law
