Faculty
BCLT's seventeen faculty co-directors have embraced online teaching, and our curriculum on tech-related topics continues to expand with new courses.
Samuelson Testimony
Guiding the Law's Direction
Prof. Pam Samuelson testified before Congress on March 10, 2020 - just one example of the many ways in which BCLT faculty directors are helping shape the law.
Practitioner Perspectives
Every Tuesday and Thursday, BCLT presents a speaker from practice, who shares insights with our students. In 2020, these luncheon talks moved online via Zoom.
Career Development
Every year, BCLT holds four career events where students can talk informally with attorneys and recruiters from major law firms.
Student Activities
BCLT funds twelve student-led organizations, including the Berkeley Technology Law Journal, the Patent Law Society and Women in Tech Law.
The BCLT Team
The BCLT staff manages an ambitious schedule of events and activities throughout the year.

For over 25 years, the Berkeley Center for Law & Technology (BCLT) has been the focal point at the University of California, Berkeley, School of Law for teaching, research, conferences, and student activities on issues at the intersection of law and technology.

Berkeley has the largest law and tech faculty of any school and offers the most extensive curriculum of courses on intellectual property, privacy, and other tech-related areas of the law.  As the digital world expands and COVID-19 shows how technology is a lifeline, Berkeley Law continues to lead in helping our legal and policy spheres keep pace.” Berkeley Law Transcript, Spring 2020.
