Cornell to launch LLM in Law, Technology and Entrepreneurship

CornellCornell Tech and Cornell Law School is launching an LLM (Master of Laws) program in Law, Technology, and Entrepreneurship with students due to start in 2016. This one-year, full-time program will be taught at Cornell Tech's innovative New York City campus. It is designed to provide practicing attorneys and recent law graduates the ability to lead technology companies in the today’s increasingly complex digital economy.

The Dean of Cornell Tech, Dan Huttenlocher, explains, “The digital economy has raised huge societal, policy and legal questions that traditional law programs simply aren't designed to address. This groundbreaking LLM program is the first of its kind to give lawyers the tools to be entrepreneurial thinkers, supporting technology startups, product development and the fast-paced growth that is driving the economy. And for Cornell Tech, the introduction of legal scholars and students to our ecosystem of technical students, MBAs and researchers will enrich the learning environment for everyone as we prepare our students for real world success."

Meanwhile, the Dean of Cornell Law, Eduardo Peñalver, says, “The rapid pace of innovation driving the technology sector today requires a new generation of lawyers with expertise in law, technology, and entrepreneurship. The goal of the LLM will be to educate this new generation with the cutting-edge lawyering skills and the business acumen necessary to become first-class attorneys working at the forefront of an entrepreneurial economy.  With virtually every modern company relying on technology and the law to further its business model, Cornell is the only university that offers an integrated program designed to equip talented lawyers with the tools for entrepreneurial success. The Law School looks forward to educating a new class of pioneering legal leaders.”
