2019 marks the twentieth anniversary of Harvard Law School’s Cyberlaw Clinic, founded at what was then known as the Berkman Center for Internet & Society in 1999. No less an authority than the Internet Archive’s Wayback Machine captured the Center’s announcement that it was launching a “clinical research program” that fall, with the promise of expansion the following spring. The program has more or less kept expanding ever since and now offers a full range of legal services to individual and institutional clients working at the intersection of technology, law, and social justice. Throughout this time, the Cyberlaw Clinic has emphasized the importance of the student experience, ensuring that it zealously advocates for clients and remains true to a core set of institutional values while providing law students with opportunities for rigorous and deep engagement with issues at the heart of the Clinic’s practice.
The Cyberlaw Clinic team plans to recognize this twenty-year milestone in a number of ways over the course of the 2019-20 academic year, with events and writings. This page will serve as a hub, collecting announcements about programming and the like. Stay tuned for more!
