Dr. Hiller's research focuses on the challenges and policy issues of how traditional law and legal institutions can sufficiently address and accommodate the evolution of the advanced technological environment. Electronic commerce makes her research more complex, since it is international in nature, and therefore, international principles and norms must be considered. Research in electronic commerce and the law has included various aspects of relationships between electronic commerce and privacy, security and trust, and electronic government and privacy. Her research articles have appeared in American Business Law Journal, Banking Law Journal and Real Estate Law Journal.
