About Our Blog

LTA-Blog is a project started in 2010 by students at the University of Washington School of Law. The blog is a part of the Washington Journal of Law, Technology & Arts, formally known as the Shidler Journal of Law, Commerce + Technology.  The Journal collaborates with the Law, Technology & Arts Group (LTA), an integrated academic unit at the University of Washington School of Law that delivers education, research, and outreach on the law’s role in promoting and regulating innovation in technology and arts.

The purpose of this blog is two-fold.  First, this blog analyzes key emerging legal issues in IP, technology, commerce, and the arts.  This analysis ensures that authors and editors at the Journal stay abreast of emerging legal issues.  Second, this blog showcases research being developed by authors at the Journal.  The Journal’s core mission is to publish clear and concise analysis.  This blog helps the Journal to continue to carry out this mission by quickly transmitting current legal information to busy attorneys and industry leaders.

LTA-Blog takes external submissions.  If you are interested in submitting an article as a guest blogger please contact our editor: WJLTA@u.washington.edu.
