Founded in 1994, the Michigan Technology Law Review (MTLR) is one of the nation's first online, student-published law journals. MTLR promotes informed discourse about legal issues arising from emerging technologies from a wide variety of fields. Because every substantive area of the law may involve a “technological hook,” MTLR has a uniquely broad scope. Past articles, essays, and notes have examined topics in antitrust law, competition policy, administrative law, biotechnology and the law, computer and Internet law, constitutional law (including privacy rights, property rights, freedom of expression, and criminal procedure), criminal law, genetics and the law, international law, law and economics, patent law, copyright law, trademark law, and media and entertainment law. The limitless integration of technology and law gives MTLR authors the flexibility to cover a vast array of legal topics and to make their mark in many emerging areas of law.
Moreover, MTLR is committed to using interactive media to provide an interdisciplinary approach to the legal, social, public policy, and business challenges presented by diverse emerging technologies. Our publications are available electronically on the Digital Commons, Westlaw, and LexisNexis. Hard copies are also available to subscribers.
MTLR has hosted ten different symposia capturing the most relevant technological issues and innovations of the time. Past symposia include: Green Technology and Economic Revitalization in Michigan (2011), The Law and Economics of Drug Development (2008), and 21st Century Copyright Law in the Digital Domain (2006).
