SEATTLE—Today the University of Washington School of Law published the Autumn 2010 issue of the new Washington Journal of Law, Technology & Arts, the nation’s first student-run electronic law journal focusing on technology, commerce, and artistic innovation.
The Washington Journal of Law, Technology & Arts publishes concise legal analysis aimed at practicing attorneys. The Journal publishes on a quarterly basis. This quarter’s edition includes five articles on topics such as:
- How to avoiding declaratory judgments in patent disputes
- New Securities and Exchange Act liability for “hacking and trading”
- Avoiding liability for content published by third-parties on websites
- Workplace GPS surveillance
- New restrictions on anti-spam lawsuits
The Journal is the nation’s first technology and law journal that also publishes articles involving the arts. The new Journal plays a key role in furthering the University of Washington School of Law’s reputation as a center of innovation and path-breaking legal research.
The Journal replaced the Shidler Journal of Law, Commerce + Technology in 2009 as part of a merger with the Law, Technology & Arts Group (LTA), a research group at the law school. LTA was formed to take a comprehensive approach to legal issues involved in artistic and technological innovation. LTA consolidated the J.D. and LL.M. programs, the former Shidler Center for Law, Commerce + Technology, and the Center for Advanced Research in Intellectual Property (CASRIP) into a single research unit covering the full scope of these areas.
The Journal accepts outside submissions from students, law professors, and practicing attorneys. For more information about the Washington Journal of Law, Technology & Arts please visit their new website.
