In the context of technology, how can the law promote abundance, efficiency, and access while also advancing values like fairness, safety, and privacy? What institutional arrangements and governance structures best support the consistent and equitable application of the law? And what empirical and legal theoretical insights can be leveraged to explain or improve the development and operation of technology law and policy? The Law and Technology Colloquium will explore these and related questions through the lens of seven projects, whose subject matter will draw from intellectual property, telecommunications, and related bodies of technology law. We will typically take one week to discuss the paper amongst ourselves, and then, in the following week, hold a workshop for the paper. During a typical discussion week, students will read the assigned scholarly work (and related works) and prepare critiques and questions for our guests. Then, during a typical workshop, an invited scholar will present their work. Students (and faculty) will join in the open discussion that follows.

Attendance at the first class is mandatory for all currently enrolled and waitlisted students; any currently enrolled or waitlisted students who are not present on the first day of class (without prior permission of the instructor) will be dropped. The instructor will continue to take attendance throughout the add/drop period and anyone who moves off the waitlist into the class must continue to attend or have prior permission of the instructor in order not to be dropped.
