This full-year seminar is designed to provide an in-depth exploration of a topic relating to law innovation both through in-depth interactions in class and by acting as the staff for the Journal of Law and Innovation. During the fall semester, the class will convene as a typical seminar, with the readings focusing on the topic of that particular year’s symposium and will culminate in hosting the annual symposium. The fall semester grade will be based on class participation and a series of short papers. Students must also enroll in the spring semester.

The topic for this year’s seminar is the role of the government in promoting the development and deployment of new network technologies. Early classes will discuss different roles the government can play in furthering this type of innovation as a general matter. Later classes will examine these issues through two case studies: the Internet and the network supporting banking back-office transactions.

Enrollment is limited to students who successfully participated in the writing competition held in March 2019.
