About the Journal

The Rutgers Computer and Technology Law Journal is a student-run organization that publishes legal commentary and scholarship. The Journal publishes two issues per year in the Spring and Fall, which incorporate scholarly works from outside authors in addition to student pieces on emerging legal issues. Founded in 1969 at the Rutgers School of Law in Newark, N.J., RCTLJ is the oldest computer law periodical in the academic world. Since its inception, RCTLJ has maintained a tradition of excellence, and has designed each publication issue to foster critical discourse on the technological breakthroughs impacting the legal landscape. RCTLJ’s success is reflected in a subscription base of about four hundred national and international subscribers, as well as in its citation in numerous texts, articles and judicial opinions, including those of the United States Supreme Court. The Journal’s editorial and managing editorial staff is comprised of second and third year law students, who receive academic credit for their work.
