A Global Platform for Research and Policy Development

Located in the heart of one of the most vibrant technology clusters in the United States, BYU’s Global Business Law Program designs legal solutions to the most challenging problems in the modern economy and trains students for a lifetime of leadership. The Program encompasses a number of initiatives for studying different aspects of economic infrastructure. Its curricular offerings include foundational classes covering the key pillars of business law, immersive simulation courses, and off-site academies and externships in New York, the Bay Area, Houston, London, and Dubai.


Our faculty members affiliated with the Program were trained at the top law schools in the United States, and many hold advanced degrees in adjacent disciplines. Prior to joining the academy, they practiced at the leading forms on Wall Street, in Silicon Valley, and in Washington, D.C. A number also have extensive in-house legal experience at Fortune 500 technology companies. We bring this background to bear on the research we conduct, the classes we teach, and the service we provide the legal community.


The Program also hosts research fellows, who collaborate with Program faculty on empirical projects. Our fellows are trained in adjacent disciplines at highly regarded programs, including the University of Chicago, Southern Methodist, and Utah State, and bring unique insights and skillsets, from machine learning to econometrics, to the Program’s efforts.
