  • Advances in computers, communications systems, electronics, and biotechnology occur at a breathtaking pace, and the Internet is having a revolutionary impact on commerce and entertainment. The faculty of the law school recognized early on the importance of many of these developments. Thus, in 1989, the University of Dayton School of Law committed itself to producing graduates who are well-versed in law and technology issues by creating the Program in Law and Technology (PILT).
  • As PILT has developed over the last two decades, it has become internationally known, attracting a variety of distinguished visitors and speakers, including the United States Commissioner of Patents and Trademarks and the General Counsel for StreamCast, as well as others from China, the Netherlands, and Australia. The program also regularly sponsors advanced programs for practitioners and scholarly symposia. The scholarly symposia and the advanced programs for practitioners are open to law students for a nominal fee.
