Welcome to the Catholic University Journal of Law and Technology (JLT), formerly known as the CommLaw Conspectus: Journal of Communications Law and Technology Policy. The Catholic University Journal of Law and Technology publishes thoughtful, timely, and useful articles that discuss recent developments in communications law, information privacy law, and intellectual property law. These fields are constantly undergoing rapid changes, and we are dedicated to addressing cutting-edge issues, policies, and technologies.
Located in Washington, D.C., JLT shares a unique relationship with the Federal Communications Commission and other federal policymakers. Members of JLT also work closely with the Catholic University Law & Technology Institute. This one-of-a-kind program prepares law students for practice in communications law, information privacy law, and intellectual property law through seminars, courses, and externships in government, industry, public interest organizations, and law firms.
JLT is a semiannual publication. A typical issue contains three to four lead articles written by communications law, information privacy law, or intellectual property law scholars and practitioners and three to four student notes and comments. In addition, we periodically publish essays, book reviews, a bibliography of recent communications law, information privacy law, and intellectual property law books, and summaries of major related cases and FCC dockets.
