Since the Berkman Center’s inception, one of our fundamental priorities has been teaching across the wide range of our areas of inquiry. Our teaching synthesizes complex legal, technological, social, and business issues; examines questions of both public and private law; and integrates relevant international and domestic legal considerations from a global perspective.

Our Cyberlaw Clinic was the first of its kind. The Clinic engages Harvard Law students in a wide range of real world litigation, licensing, client counseling, advocacy, and legislative projects and cases.

While the core of our teaching has been and remains courses at Harvard Law School, we also strive to reach and involve a broader audience. Faculty associated with the Berkman Center combine to teach as many as ten courses annually as part of the curricula at Harvard Law School, Harvard College, and Harvard Extension School.

We also experiment with innovative uses of technology in our teaching, and we use technology to reach distant and dispersed audiences.

iLaw: Professor Terry Fisher initiated the Internet Law Program in 2000 to offer the public a way to learn about the essential legal, economic, and public interest debates surrounding the Internet.

SDP: The Center has partnered with the Oxford Internet Institute to offer the annual Summer Doctoral Programme since the Programme was launched in 2003.

Online: Most Berkman conferences, lectures, and discussions are webcast and archived for the purposes of sharing knowledge with university partners, Berkman affiliates, and the global public. Ongoing series such as our Tuesday Luncheons attract an ever-wider virtual audience and carry forward the mission of early experiments such as BOLD.

These extensive offerings (currently being filled in) - and others still - serve as a key means of bridging our scholarship, community-building, and educational activities. Our courses both unify and transcend these separate threads, helping to weave them into and throughout everything we do, while engaging a wide and diverse audience in the most challenging aspects of our work.
