Cornell Law School today announced the launch of the Program in Information and Technology Law at Cornell Tech. Based at the new Cornell Tech campus on Roosevelt Island in New York City, this new and innovative Program will explore the diverse legal issues raised by information and technology, such as privacy and cybersecurity as well as the constitutional and regulatory implications of new technology and big data.
“The opening of the Cornell Tech campus on Roosevelt Island in the summer of 2017 presents the Law School with an unprecedented opportunity to enhance its technology law curriculum,” said Cornell Law School Dean Eduardo Peñalver. “It provides an exciting new way for our students to study this important area of the law in the heart of the fastest growing tech market in the country.”
Beginning in the spring semester of 2018, Cornell Law School JD students will be able to spend a semester taking courses at the Information and Technology Program in New York City. The Law School anticipates up to 20 JD students participating in the Program full time during any given semester.
