University of Pittsburgh School of Law Hosts Lastowka Cyberlaw Colloquium
Meeting of scholars in the fields of cyberlaw and intellectual property to be held Feb. 5-6, 2016

The University of Pittsburgh School of Law will host the 2016 Lastowka Cyberlaw Colloquium, a gathering of scholars in the fields of cyberlaw and intellectual property, on Feb. 5-6, 2016. The Colloquium is designed as an intensive workshop to exchange ideas in connection with commentary on academic papers and other works in progress.

This annual Colloquium was founded in 2002 as the Penn-Temple-Wharton (PTW) Colloquium, and became the Cyberlaw Colloquium in the years that followed. This year, the Colloquium has been renamed the Lastowka Cyberlaw Colloquium in honor and in memory of the late Professor Greg Lastowka, a founding member of the PTW Colloquium and a pioneering cyberlaw scholar. Lastowka served on the faculty of Rutgers University School of Law at Camden, now Rutgers Law.

“I'm thrilled that Pitt Law is able to host this group of outstanding, cutting edge scholars, and to begin the tradition of honoring one our most beloved and respected colleagues," states Pitt Law Professor and Director of the Innovation Practice Institute, Michael J. Madison.
