Center for Innovation

C4i

The Center for Innovation (C4i) at UC Hastings promotes data-driven law-making and seeks to empower policymakers and regulators to make informed, evidence-based decisions, particularly at the intersection of law and technology.

More than a think tank, C4i is an action tank invested in identifying implementable solutions to today’s problems. Research initiatives and classroom components are integral to the Center as it identifies and advances the knowledge, tools, and skills necessary to foster innovation in the practice and development of law and policy.

C4i is led by Professor Robin Feldman.
