About Practical Pieces & Perspectives

The University of Illinois Journal of Law, Technology & Policy (“JLTP”) is a biannual peer-reviewed law journal, established at the University of Illinois in 2001. JLTP’s mission is to publish pieces on new technologies that raise important policy questions in both foreign and domestic jurisdictions, and to discuss the laws, regulations, and policies that affect technological development and innovation.


The two issues per year focus on technological innovation, policy, and the field of intellectual property. Each issue features articles by professors, judges, and practitioners and student-written notes. Additionally, JLTP continuously publishes practical pieces and perspectives: short form works focused on recent developments at the intersection of law,
technology, and policy. The collaboration of JLTP’s members, editors, faculty, and contributing scholars adds unique and diverse perspectives to the discussion of the legal implications of technology.

JLTP is available exclusively online in order to publish cutting-edge scholarly works through a continuous publishing schedule. JLTP is indexed by Hein Online, LEXIS, and Westlaw.
