Program on Law & Innovation

About Us

The law, the legal services industry, and legal education are all undergoing unprecedented transformations due to rapid social, economic, and technological changes. Vanderbilt’s Program on Law & Innovation (PoLI) trains the next generation of lawyers to succeed in a rapidly evolving professional environment by anticipating and taking advantage of the opportunities created by changes in law and legal practice.

PoLI curriculum and activities focus on four related themes, exposing Vanderbilt Law students to changes in the legal industry that will have a profound influence on the way they practice law.

Program Themes

In Law Practice 2050, you learn the skills to identify an evolving area of law and become an expert in it. I choose to focus on artificial intelligence and quantum computing. It's really exciting to be working in an area of law that is innovative and constantly evolving."
