Technology and the Law

UCLA Law's courses, faculty and special programs offer opportunities for students to gain a deep understanding of the disruptive impact of technology on law and society.

Artificial intelligence, sophisticated algorithms and other rapid advances in technology are changing how people and institutions engage with each other and raise numerous vexing issues for application of the law. UCLA Law's Institute for Technology, Law & Policy, a collaboration with UCLA Samueli School of Engineering, explores the impact on advances on privacy, justice and the law. The Program for Understanding Law, Science & Evidence (PULSE @ UCLA Law) explores the intersection of new technologies and admissible evidence. The student-run Journal of Law & Technology has published leading scholarship in the field since 1996.
