What will I learn?

Law, Technology and Culture [LTC] is the pre-law program at NJIT. It is an interdisciplinary legal studies program that combines a traditional pre-law education with a focus on the intersection of science, technology, and law.

Program Objectives

At the heart of the Law, Technology and Culture program is a dynamic, interdisciplinary core curriculum of 21 credits of law-related coursework in history, philosophy, social science, engineering, information technology, management, and science, technology and society. Special features of the program’s curriculum allow students to focus on their interests in law in relation to technology, media, environment, health, and culture.

We expect that, as a student and/or graduate of the Law, Technology and Culture B.A. program, you will meet the following:

Academic Excellence: Students will excel in 21 required law and technology credits, 18 credits of law-related electives, a 3-credit internship in law and a 3-credit senior seminar in which they prepare a major paper in law, technology and culture.

Student-Faculty Collaboration: Students will benefit from personal guidance from distinguished faculty in crafting an individualized course of study. They have the opportunity to do independent legal research under the supervision of faculty.

Career Development: Students will plan for a legal career and/or apply for an advanced degree program.

Learning Outcomes

If you are interested in how law and regulation shape contemporary society, the Law, Technology, and Culture program will offer you a valuable educational opportunity. An honors orientation; hands-on internships in law; a senior seminar in law, technology, and culture; and a patent law option available to students pursuing careers as patent attorneys or patent examiners are among the benefits of this program.

While students in the Law, Technology and Culture B.A program acquire a diverse range of skills and knowledge, we specifically aim for our students to meet the following learning outcomes:

Students can communicate effectively, both orally and in writing.

Students are able to demonstrate knowledge of basic legal principles and core substantive and procedural laws.

Students demonstrate proficiency in seeking and using information efficiently, effectively, and ethically.

Students observe and practice applications of concepts learned in a real-world setting.
