The Columbus School of Law at The Catholic University of America is pleased to announce that the Institute for Communications Law Studies will now be known as the Law and Technology Institute (LTI). Under the new name, the Law School’s goal is to build upon and expand the outstanding work and successes that the Communications Law Institute has accomplished over the past three decades.

LTI will offer an enhanced curriculum to students interested in exploring the many important legal questions and policy debates surrounding evolving technologies. The curriculum will equip students with a well-rounded foundation while also allowing them to pursue a particular area of interest, including communications law, intellectual property law, and information privacy law. LTI students will gain valuable practical experience through externships in government, industry, public interest organizations, and law firms. Students will also have the opportunity to hone their research, writing, advocacy, and leadership skills through participation in various co-curricular activities, such as the Catholic University Journal of Law and Technology, formerly known as the CommLaw Conspectus: Journal of Communications Law and Technology Policy. Finally, LTI students will plan and participate in programming on various law and technology topics, and will have regular opportunities to network with our accomplished and dedicated alumni and friends.

Professors Megan La Belle and Elizabeth Winston will serve as the co-directors of LTI. Click here for a message from LTI's co-directors.
