The Center for Internet and Society (CIS) brings together scholars, academics, legislators, students, programmers, security researchers and scientists to study the interaction of new technologies and the law. CIS strives to inform the design of both technology and law in furtherance of important public policy goals such as privacy, free speech, innovation and scientific inquiry.
The Center for Law and the Biosciences (CLB) examines bioscience discoveries – in genetics, neuroscience, stem cell research, and other fields – in the context of the law, weighing their impact on society and the law's role in shaping that impact.
CodeX, a partnership between the Law School and the Department of Computer Science, explores how information technology can enhance legal processes and practices, and empower all parties in our legal system.
Stanford Law School's Program in Law, Science and Technology (LST) explores one of the most highly charged fields of study in law today. People working on this continuously evolving frontier face complex issues including patent reform, copyright and privacy issues arising on the Internet, legal and ethical issues surrounding new discoveries in the biosciences, and issues surrounding technologies that promise to make the legal system more efficient. Through interdisciplinary research and teaching, the Program produces cutting-edge scholarship and trains the next generation of leaders in the field.
The Stanford Neurosciences Institute is creating the Stanford Program in Neuroscience and Society (SPINS), a multidisciplinary initiative to study how neuroscience affects society, and to bring neuroscientists knowledge of human behavior and cognition from scholars in law, education and business. Through SPINS, SNI will create cooperative dialogue and partnership between these disciplines. After all, our nervous systems evolved to produce behavior, which neuroscience seeks to explain. SPINS will be based in the Stanford Law School and directed by law professor Hank Greely. Anthony D. Wagner, professor of psychology and neuroscience, will be the deputy director.
The Transatlantic Technology Law Forum addresses technology-related issues in law and policy that affect the Transatlantic marketplace.
