Stanford Program in Law, Science & Technology

LST Affiliates Program

Affiliates of the Program in Law, Science & Technology (LST) contribute through sponsorship and program input and support cutting-edge research, teaching, and program development across the three Centers currently housed within the program: the Center for E-Commerce, the Center for Internet and Society, and the Center for Law & Biosciences.

LST draws from Stanford Law School's renowned faculty experts and technologically savvy and enthusiastic students, alumni practicing on the cutting edge of technology law, and a location in the heart of Silicon Valley to address the many questions arising from the increasingly prominent role that science and technology play in both national and global arenas. The program brings together legal, technology and business leaders, government and regulatory officials, advocacy organizations, and the public at large to identify and to work toward innovative answers to important questions that are raised at the intersection of law, science and technology.
