Student Submissions


The Journal of Law & Innovation (JLI) publishes writings by academics, practitioners, and policymakers on a variety of topics including intellectual property, privacy, data-protection, cybersecurity, smart-contracts, anti-trust, fintech, internet policy, and the impact of policy and legal doctrine on innovation.

The Journal publishes one volume each year in the spring. Each volume features several articles that relate to a preselected topic that also serves as the topic of our yearly symposium held in the spring. The topic for Volume 7 to be published in Summer 2024 will be Antitrust Regulation of Digital Platforms.
