Breakthrough Thinkers and Educators
Stanford Law’s reputation and intellectual resources make its Program in Law, Science & Technology a magnet for productive scholars and industry leaders to teach and inspire tomorrow’s lawyers and leaders.
Stanford has by far the country’s strongest lineup of law, science, and technology faculty—experts in intellectual property, patent law, antitrust law, communications law, finance, contracts, Internet law, computer crime and security, technology transfer, electronic surveillance, healthcare and health research law, biotechnology and medical ethics, securities litigation, cyberlaw, and electronic commerce. In addition to providing students with a solid grounding in the fundamentals of law, science, and technology, top professors serve as mentors and invite students to take part in their groundbreaking research.
Colleagues from across the university—faculty with expertise in business, medicine, computer science, economics, and public policy—complement the strengths of the LST faculty. Whether they pursue a joint degree or simply augment their legal expertise with classes in other departments, LST students have the opportunity to explore the many ways law, science and technology affect each other.
