Education

Teaching and learning are at the core of our work. Berkman Klein Center faculty and affiliates teach and mentor across the University and beyond the gates of Harvard. Among our key programs is the Cyberlaw Clinic, which has educated hundreds of Harvard Law School students thought real-world opportunities to advise clients on technology-related issues with the guidance of licensed attorneys. We also build platforms to facilitate new ways of learning and open our classrooms to the world.

Examples of our education-related activities include the Digital Literacy Resource Platform (DLRP), an evolving collection of tools in different languages that people can use to learn more about Internet related themes; CopyrightX, a three-pronged initiative that includes a course at Harvard Law School, a popular online course open to the public, and a series of international affiliated courses taught by local copyright experts; the AGTech Forum, a series of workshops that bring together state attorneys general and staff with academics and technologists to discuss emerging issues in technology; and H2O, a platform for organizing, consuming, and sharing electronic textbooks, and course materials. We also contribute to learning and the exchange of ideas through the workshops, events, and talks we host, which bring leading thinkers and practitioners together with our community and the public to discuss challenging topics related to the Internet.

Past efforts have included study groups that are open to the public on topics such as robotics and the ethics of data, Harvard’s Digital Problem Solving Initiative, and iLaw, an early initiative aimed to to offer the public a way to learn about the essential legal, economic, and public interest debates surrounding the Internet and new technologies.

Formal courses are also among Berkman Klein’s educational offerings. Below is a list of BKC-affiliated courses offered at Harvard.
