About the Oklahoma Journal of Law and Technology

The Oklahoma Journal of Law & Technology (OKJOLT) is no longer published.

In 1998, Governor Frank Keating challenged institutions of higher education in the State of Oklahoma to take a leadership position in fostering research and development in advanced technology fields. The University of Oklahoma heeded this call and in an effort to continue this worthy pursuit, the University of Oklahoma College of Law launched the Oklahoma Journal of Law & Technology, Oklahoma's first legal publication devoted to the convergence of emerging technology and the law.

When it was produced, OKJOLT strived to keep practitioners, judges, policymakers and academic communities informed through the use of an easily accessible forum which provided timely and insightful scholarship regarding the dynamic field of technology law.

OKJOLT was Oklahoma's first journal published exclusively in electronic format. Using the latest in electronic publishing technology the journal published timely data in a reader-friendly environment with hypertext linking to supporting documents, easily accessible through the World Wide Web.
