HLS Students: Meet the Cyberlaw Clinic!

Harvard Law School students interested in the Cyberlaw Clinic are invited to meet the Clinic’s supervising attorneys over lunch on Thursday, February 20, 2014 from 12:00 noon – 1:00 pm in WCC 5052. Pizza will be served. Instructors from the Clinic will offer perspectives on the Clinic’s docket and describe their practice-based approach to teaching technology law and advocacy skills.

The session will be especially valuable for those interested in enrolling in the Clinic during the 2014-15 academic year and will serve as an open forum for students to ask questions before clinical enrollment begins in April.  It is presented as part of the “ClinicTalks!” series, hosted by Harvard Law School’s Office of Clinical and Pro Bono Programs.

Harvard Law School’s Cyberlaw Clinic, based at Harvard’s Berkman Center for Internet & Society, provides high-quality, pro-bono legal services to appropriate clients on issues relating to the Internet, new technology, and intellectual property. Students enhance their preparation for high-tech practice and earn course credit by working on real-world litigation, client counseling, advocacy, and transactional / licensing projects and cases. The Clinic strives to help clients achieve success in their activities online, mindful of (and in response to) existing law. The Clinic also works with clients to shape the law’s development through policy and advocacy efforts.
