Welcome to the new online home of the Columbia Law School Society for Law, Science & Technology!
SLST brings students together to discuss current legal issues involving science and technology and to inform students about relevant job opportunities. The group isn’t just for former science majors and our members have all kinds of different backgrounds — it’s for anyone interested in trying to understand how law affects and is challenged by scientific knowledge and technological change. We host panels and events focusing on how technology and science affect the legal framework in which we live and vice-versa (e.g. Internet privacy issues, bioethics, copyright fair use, open source software, etc.). SLST is a founding member of nycinfolaw.org, a joint project to collaborate and share information and events through the tech law community in New York City. As part of NYCInfoLaw, we co-host a bi-monthly reading group with other member law schools.
Check out the links on the top of the page for how to contact us, events, and watch this space for blog entries describing what we’re doing, other events of interest to the law & technology community at Columbia, as well as commentary about neat cases and news stories.
