About the Center
In an age of rapid technological change, law schools play a key role in understanding how this innovation transforms society, and how lawyers and laws can meet the resulting challenges.
The Center for Law and Transformational Technology at Drexel University’s Thomas R. Kline School of Law brings together key stakeholders, including legal and technological scholars, industry leaders, activists, regulators and other experts from across the country and the world. The Center supports concrete efforts to gauge the legal impact of transformational technology, promote critical conversations about the role of law in technological change and bring legal experts into interdisciplinary conversations with researchers and developers at all stages of design and development.
Working across industries, the Center helps educate lawyers to play a positive role navigating a technological landscape we cannot yet imagine. By facilitating international and multi-disciplinary partnerships, the Center seeks to contribute to a future in which technology moves forward hand-in-hand with society.
Message from the Director
Professor Jordan L. Fischer
At Kline Law, we are extremely excited to launch the Center for Law and Transformational Technology during such a pivotal and dynamic time in technology. The conversations around law and technology, and the role of privacy and data security are expanding, drawing in more stakeholders and revealing the many challenges left to address.
With this Center, Kline Law will become a base for a diverse community to draw from a variety of perspectives and provide thoughtful discussion on the convergence of law and technology. By bringing together a multidisciplinary community, we hope to facilitate the exploration of new and innovative solutions, ideas and research to help guide the future of technology.
We look forward to welcoming students, academics, industry members and leaders across all disciplines to collaborate with the Center, and continue to drive the thought leadership of tomorrow, today.
