BCLT 25th Anniversary Gala

For 25 years, the Berkeley Center for Law & Technology has been the focal point at the UC Berkeley School of Law for teaching, research, convening, and student activities on issues at the intersection of law and technology.
Join us on February 27, 2020 as we celebrate a quarter century of innovation, leadership and growth. Come meet BCLT’s 17 faculty directors, speakers at the annual BCLT/BTLJ Symposium, and fellow Berkeley Law alumni. Keynote addresses being planned.


24th Annual BCLT/BTLJ Symposium

The gala follows the first day of the annual symposium sponsored by BCLT and the Berkeley Technology Law Journal. This year’s theme is “The Roles of Technology Expertise in Law and Policy.” On Thursday, February 27, five federal judges, some of the nation’s top intellectual property litigators, and leading scholars will explore the theory and practicalities of using technical expertise in patent and copyright cases. On February 28, current and former government officials, public interest advocates, and scholars from a range of disciplines will consider how expertise can be identified and deployed in legislative and executive branch decision-making.  Symposium agenda and registration.
