About NC JOLT

Mission Statement

The North Carolina Journal of Law & Technology (“NC JOLT”) is a student run journal at the University of North Carolina School of Law that focuses on the many intersections between law and technology. We define technology very broadly, covering issues in intellectual property, science, cyberspace, environmental law, criminal law, etc.

NC JOLT is a forum for the publication and exchange of ideas and information about the relationships between law, science and technology in all areas, including:

  • Intellectual Property;
  • Engineering, communications, and computers;
  • Physical, life and social sciences;
  • The uses of science and technology in law practices, adjudications, and court and agency administration; and
  • Policy implications, and legislative and administrative control of science and technology, and the business aspects of running a technology company.
