The Yale Law & Technology Society (TechSoc) is an organization that helps foster Yale’s growing community, debate, and scholarship at the intersection of law and technology. We define “technology” broadly, covering topics including: data and privacy, network neutrality, hacktivism and social movements, mobile currency, wireless spectrum, start-ups, cybersecurity, information sharing, energy, health IT, access to knowledge, artificial intelligence, and more.
TechSoc provides tech-minded students with access to a growing network of law students, alumni, and practitioners. At the law school, TechSoc hosts speaker events, student roundtables, and “ThinkTanks” at which students present their research and proposals. The group also advocates for more tech-focused curriculum options, collaborates with other student groups both at the law school and other graduate programs, and works closely with law and technology reading groups. Finally, it provides a social community for students to discuss their interests, passions, and experiences with each other in casual, informal settings.
