What responsibility do tech lawyers have to advocate for the public interest and social justice? How have our roles changed with the growth of the internet, and what will the future demand of advocates, as technology grows ever more complex and influential? 

In celebration of the 20th anniversary of the Harvard Law School Cyberlaw Clinic, founded at the Berkman Klein Center for Internet & Society in 1999, we are bringing together Clinic alumni, staff, and supporters to explore the foundational role lawyers play in fostering innovation that is respectful of civil and human rights. The symposium will range across the various areas of the Clinic's practice: privacy, speech, intellectual property, platform governance, intellectual property, government innovation, AI and emerging technology, and more. 

The event will include remarks from Christopher Bavitz, Susan CrawfordJessica Fjeld, Urs Gasser, John Manning, and Jonathan Zittrain, as well as panels on the present and future of social justice advocacy in technology, moderated by Kendra Albert and Mason Kortz and an interactive session in which participants will help envision the Clinic's next 20 years. It will conclude with a reception.
