Law, Technology & Arts
The Law, Technology & Arts Group (LTA) delivers education, research, and outreach
on the law's role in promoting and regulating innovation in technology and arts.
Both the UW and Seattle have well developed technology and arts communities that
already intersect in significant ways. Seattle is a destination city for the creative
class who often move seamlessly between technology and the arts. The practicing
bar is highly sophisticated with many firms specializing in emerging growth tech
companies across the spectrum of the life sciences, information technology, and
new media/digital arts.
LTA is deeply connected to this community through its directors,
staff, and adjunct faculty.

A message from Dean Kellye Testy
integrates and administers all of the UW School of Law's education, research, and
outreach in the areas of tech law, art law, and intellectual property. Our distinguished
faculty Directors oversee a robust J.D. and LL.M. curriculum, the Technology Law & Public Policy Clinic, the Entrepreneurial Law Clinic (ELC), an established journal, an internationally renowned set of annual conferences and a speaker series.
We hope you will join us as we build on the world class art and technology communities
centered at the UW and in Seattle to establish LTA as the hub of dialogue on the
intersection of law, technology, and arts. Innovation in the law is needed to ensure
that innovation in technology and arts is vibrantly promoted and properly regulated.
LTA's mission is to simultaneously consider both of these sides to the law's role
in creativity through outstanding teaching, research, and service.
