Sections

Each of the online sections of CopyrightX has 25 students and is taught by a Harvard Teaching Fellow. During the twelve weeks of the course, students in the sections watch the recorded lectures, read from the section syllabus, and participate in special events.

Each section meets weekly for a 90-minute seminar held online via videoconferencing software. In order to pass the course and receive a certificate of completion, a student must attend his or her discussion section for at least 10 out of the 12 weeks and pass a written exam.

Participation in the online component of CopyrightX is limited to approximately 500 people. Anyone 13 years or older who has a reasonable command of the English language is welcome to apply for admission. No legal background is necessary.

Admission

When evaluating applications, we look for curiosity, enthusiasm, intelligence and commitment to completing the course. However, we do not privilege educational attainment or legal knowledge. Instead, we strive to select a class that is diverse on multiple dimensions: country of residence; age; gender; occupation; and interests.

If you wish to be notified when applications are being accepted for future versions of the course, please join the CopyrightX mailing list.

A computer with a microphone and an Internet connection download speed of at least 0.044 Mbps are required for participation in the seminars. Webcams are not required, but may be helpful.

The timeslots are listed in Coordinated Universal Time (UTC).
