The Law and Economics Program explores cutting-edge legal issues that stem from the rise of digital technology and the Internet. The program focuses on antitrust and intellectual property policies, often working cooperatively with Stanford Law School’s John M. Olin Program in Law and Economics. The explosive growth of the technology sector has raised new legal questions, profoundly reshaping traditional patent and copyright practices, and enforcement of laws promoting fair competition. Law and Economics Program researchers and guest speakers analyze how trends in these areas affect technology-sector competitiveness, business profitability, and the environment for innovation. The program has examined the legal and economic questions surrounding net neutrality, and how to effectively apply intellectual property law to businesses built around emerging technologies.
