Innovation Center for Law and Technology
The Innovation Center for Law and Technology provides New York Law School students with a cutting-edge approach to education and skills training in law and technology. Through courses, software development projects, events, and research, the Innovation Center brings together practitioners, students, and scholars to create the future of legal practice.
The Innovation Center promotes career pathways in a wide variety of areas at the intersection of law and technology, including digital transformation of the legal profession, innovation in the delivery of legal services, and the growth of technology-driven fields such as legal operations, legal design, and product counseling; legaltech applications in fields such as contract automation, litigation software, legal informatics, and artificial intelligence; intellectual property, data privacy, fashion, media, and entertainment; and transactional practice in areas such as intellectual property licensing, software-as-a-service agreements, and privacy policies.
A key aspect of the Innovation Center’s work is the development of sophisticated and powerful software applications and tools that aid the practice of law, support fields such as compliance and legal operations, and promote the public interest.
All NYLS students are welcome to join the Center as affiliates. Affiliating enables students to enhance their specialized knowledge and skills in intellectual property, privacy, and technology law; expand their networks; advance their professional development; and participate in Center events.
The Center provides a forum for events focused on intellectual property, data and privacy, information and technology, and innovation and entrepreneurship.
