The Shidler Journal of Law, Technology + Commerce published its final issue today. Starting June 2010, the Shidler Journal will become the Washington Journal of Law, Technology & Arts.
The University of Washington School of Law decided to change the Journal name after creating a new research program, Law, Technology & Arts Group (LTA). LTA merged the Shidler Center for Law, Commerce + Technology, the Graduate Program in IP Law & Policy, and the Center for Advanced Study & Research on Intellectual Property (CASRIP) into a single research unit.
The new Journal will continue to publish the same succinct legal research that readers came to expect from the Shidler Journal of Law, Commerce + Technology. The new partnership with LTA will simply allow the Journal to grow and publish more cutting-edge legal analysis.
