History & Mission
The Journal of Technology Law & Policy (JTLP) is a scholarly legal journal devoted to the discussion of relevant technology issues, including patents, copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, antitrust, information privacy, and computer law. JTLP is one of four co-curricular journals produced at the University of Florida Fredric G. Levin College of Law.
JTLP was one of the nation’s first law journals devoted to discussion and analysis of the legal implications of technology. It was also one of the first law journals to have the full text of its articles freely available online. JTLP became an exclusively online publication in 2016.
JTLP began as a project of the Internet and Computer Law Association, a University of Florida student organization, until it became a fully accredited independent academic journal in Spring 1999. Since its founding in the Fall of 1995, JTLP has steadily become one of the foremost national intellectual property and technology law academic publications. Despite being the youngest journal at UF Law, JTLP is the second-highest ranked behind the Florida Law Review, and is ranked among the top fifteen Science, Technology, and Computing journals in the U.S.
