Our Mission

The Tech, Law & Security Program (TLS) is a new initiative at American University Washington College of Law (WCL) that will tackle the challenges and opportunities posed by emerging technology—offering innovative solutions, engaging our students, and training the leaders of tomorrow.

We will work across the public and private sectors, focus our attention on core and insufficiently understood challenges and opportunities, and help to ensure that technology is used to support the functioning of effective democracies and core democratic values, including privacy, security, freedom of speech, and the discernment of truth.
