The Law and Technology Student Society is the Faculty of Law's official student-run club for law students who have an interest in technology law and policy. The LTSS provides students with resources to prepare them in their pursuit of a career in technology law and raises awareness regarding the social, ethical, or legal issues surrounding the use or control of technology in modern society.
The LTSS is comprised of students who have a common interest in law and technology-related issues. We encourage students with interests in IP, telecommunications and broadcasting, privacy law, biotechnology, data security, AI, robotics, VR, AR, etc. to become a member and join us throughout the year for events.
Each fall the LTSS hosts an IP firm tour, which coincides with Ottawa IP firm recruitment. The LTSS also hosted a panel discussion in October with Ottawa IP lawyers to provide information on career opportunities in IP for law students, as well as for science and engineering students
For the past two years, the LTSS has hosted 'Encryption 101' where students learn how to use technological tools to protect both personal and client information. The LTSS also works with the faculty's Centre for Law, Technology and Society (CLTS) to encourage students to take technology law courses and seek out research assistant positions with tech law professors on research projects. The LTSS and CLTS also collaborate on events, including one which featured panelists discussing freedom of the press and surveillance in the wake of police surveillance of Patrick Lagacé and other journalists in Québec and Canada.
The LTSS is passionate about bridging the gap between technologists, lawyers and policy makers. Get involved with the LTSS today!
