Cornell to Launch an LL.M. in Law, Technology, and Entrepreneurship

New program will be offered in Cornell Tech's New York City campus

Cornell Tech and Cornell Law School have announced the launch of a new LL.M. in Law, Technology, and Entrepreneurship.

The program will help students gain the skills they need to support and lead technology companies.

“The digital economy has raised huge societal, policy and legal questions that traditional law programs simply aren’t designed to address,” according to Dan Huttenlocher, dean of Cornell Tech.

The new LL.M. will "give lawyers the tools to be entrepreneurial thinkers, supporting technology startups, product development and the fast-paced growth that is driving the economy," says Huttenlocher.

Curriculum will include practical experiences, including hands-on components where students will provide legal support to teams that are solving problems that exist in present-day technology.

The program is aimed at already-practicing attorneys or recent law graduates who have an active interest in technology and entrepreneurship.

The LL.M. in Law, Technology, and Entrepreneurship is set to launch in 2016. The first intake will start on Cornell Tech's New York City campus, which is located in Manhattan's Chelsea neighborhood. In mid-2017, though, the school plans to move the program to Cornell Tech's planned Roosevelt Island campus.
