Institute for Technology, Law & Policy

The Institute for Technology, Law & Policy leads cross-disciplinary research to learn, and to optimize, how established and emerging technologies influence society, privacy, law and public policy.


Policy at the Speed of Tech

AI, algorithms and other advances are disrupting society, privacy, commerce and the law. The Institute for Technology, Law & Policy examines emerging issues in a rapidly changing environment.

A partnership between UCLA School of Law and UCLA Samueli School of Engineering, the Institute for Technology, Law & Policy examines the benefits and risks presented by technologies such as artificial intelligence and machine learning, robotics, cybersecurity, and digital media and communications.

These and other rapidly evolving technologies raise questions germane to the outcome of ethical and public policy issues, and the applicability and utility of current laws and regulations that govern their use.
