The Columbia Science and Technology Law Review (STLR) engages thought-provoking issues at the intersection of cutting-edge technology, policy, and the law.
STLR is one of the preeminent science and technology law journals in the country. While we are a traditional journal (past authors include Professor Richard A. Merrill and Professor Richard Epstein) our innovative and evolving use of the Web and new media sets us apart. As with every other journal, STLR emphasizes skills – such as bluebooking, legal research, and writing – which are critical for law-related employment. Our strengths, however, go beyond these traditional bounds.
We were the first journal at Columbia to blog, having published on popular websites such as engadget. We encourage our staffers to produce timely commentary on recent legal issues, and the blog provides a platform for our work to immediately reach the online legal community. Literature on the Web is increasingly being cited, not only in journals but even by the Supreme Court. We continue to aggressively seek new outlets for our scholarship, and make our work more accessible to lawyers, academics, and students everywhere.
