The NYS Science + Technology Law Center has been a leader in technology commercialization for nearly a decade. Since our inception, we’ve assisted hundreds of companies and institutions in their quest to commercialize emerging technology.

At our core is the Syracuse Law’s Technology Commercialization Law Program (TCLP). Established in 1990, the TCLP is an innovative program that was the first of its kind in the country to combine science and technology development with legal analysis and hands-on experience.

In August 2004, Empire State Development’s Division of Science, Technology and Innovation (NYSTAR) recognized the unique value and economic contributions of the Technology Commercialization Law Program (TCLP) and established the New York State Science + Technology Law Center at Syracuse University College of Law. The mission of the NYS STLC is to facilitate New York State’s economic development by leveraging the experience and expertise of law faculty and students to assist even more NYS businesses and institutions in delivering new and emerging technology to the marketplace.

Our diverse, experienced, and educated faculty, students, and staff focus on intellectual property assessment, patent protection, market landscaping, and other commercialization matters.

In addition to Syracuse University College of Law students, we also partner with the Martin J. Whitman School of Management’s Entrepreuneurship and Emerging Enterprises Program (EEE) to have their students join our teams to provide the market landscapes.

The students also create regulatory landscapes to help get products and devices to market.
