Our faculty have gained national recognition for their research.
Research networks with academics in the United States and abroad foster the Program’s study and research of design and law. The annual Design Law Scholars’ Roundtable, in partnership with the Chicago-Kent College of Law Center for Design, Law & Technology gathers scholars in an informal, academic setting to discuss the existential foundations of design and law, and the dis-junctures and complementary aspects of legal thought and non-legal thought about design. Roundtables held on campus allow for deep discussion of recently published scholarly texts on design, intellectual property, and technology law with the author and commentators. Students benefit from the faculty’s commitment to research and the complementary events, writing papers that place in national competitions, such as the Berkeley Technology Law Journal’s annual writing competition.
