The Stanford Technology Law Review (STLR) strives to publish work on cutting edge issues of law posed by advances in modern technology. As technology becomes an increasingly important part of everyday life, STLR strives to provide a timely response to new legal challenges and opportunities posed by innovation.
In doing so, STLR embraces a broad view of “technology.” Technology includes software and AI, biotechnology and life sciences, clean-, med-, and fin-tech, neuroscience, and other hard and emerging sciences. When it comes to such technologies, STLR seeks scholarship that examines how technology is developed, funded, protected, regulated, concentrated, used, and abused.
Finally, STLR is committed to diversity and inclusion across law and technology. The journal is published exclusively online and is open-access, and STLR is committed to publishing pieces by authors with a diverse range of backgrounds and views. In all ways, STLR works to broaden the range of voices—and what those voices contribute—to the intersection of law and technology.
STLR is currently closed for submissions.

At its core, STLR is devoted to the discovery and transmission of legal knowledge. STLR cannot be limited in its methods and ways of thinking, or confined to one individual’s or a single community’s experiences. To further this mission, we must bring a broad range of ideas and approaches.
STLR strives to ensure that a diversity of cultures, races and ethnicities, genders, political and religious beliefs, physical and learning differences, sexual orientations and identities is represented. Such diversity will inspire new angles of inquiry, new modes of analysis, and new solutions, contributing to our core mission.
To advance legal scholarship, it is essential to be exposed to views and cultures other than one’s own and to have one’s opinions and assumptions challenged. Such engagement expands our horizons, enables understanding across difference, prevents complacency and promotes intellectual breadth.
Our diversity ensures our strength as an intellectual community. In today’s world, diversity represents the key to excellence and achievement.
