Science & Technology Law

ASU Law’s Center for Law, Science, and Innovation: advancing science and technology law and policy for over 30 years

Emerging technologies are rapidly transforming both the substance and practice of law in almost every area. Artificial intelligence, precision medicine, big data, autonomous systems, blockchain, 3D printers, drones, mobile apps are just some of the developments that raise novel legal issues with regard to regulation, liability, privacy, intellectual property, individual rights, and how lawyers and professionals practice every day. ASU Law is dedicated to training 21st century lawyers who will have unique expertise and competitive advantage in today’s legal world.

As science and technology assume central roles in our lives, economy, and legal system, the Center for Law, Science and Innovation is uniquely positioned as an innovator in teaching and applying science, technology and law. From robotics to genetics, neuroscience to nanotech, LSI’s innovative projects and programs constantly evolve to address challenging governance and policy issues through cutting-edge curriculum, practical experience, conferences and workshops, research projects, and scholarship.

The LSI network

LSI was built on, and continues to engage, a robust network of academics, policy-makers, professionals, and industry. Students and alumni fellows play a critical role in LSI projects, and have opportunities to learn from and work with interdisciplinary experts in their area of interest.
