Special note regarding dormitory space:  The Cronkhite Center dormitory is convenient to campus and a good value in comparison to the average cost of hotel or bed-and-breakfast accommodations in the Cambridge area.  However, it is important to note that this facility houses students during the school year and is modestly equipped.  It is not comparable to hotel accommodations and does not offer amenities such as air conditioning, television, maid service, food or room service, valet service, or wake-up calls.  One set of linens is provided and changed every other day.  Telephones and fans are available for an additional fee and their use must be arranged for in advance. Further details are provided upon registering.


Social activities covered by the course fee include a welcome reception and banquet on the first evening and two outings, including a Boston Red Sox baseball game on the evening of July 5th.  Details will be provided in the registration packets on your arrival.  Casual dress is appropriate for all events.


Program fees do not include the cost of meals, except for daily lunch, snacks and dinner at two social events.  The Hark Box at Harkness Commons on the Harvard Law School campus serves a variety of light breakfast items from 7:30 a.m., Monday through Friday.


Berkman Center programs have been approved for continuing legal education (CLE) credits by every state to which we have applied. State mandatory CLE guidelines vary, and students bear the responsibility of informing the staff on how to report information and to what organizations. It is very important that the CLE section on the registration form be completed by participants seeking credits. Generally, courses have been approved for 7.5 CLE hours (maximum 30 credits possible per week; depending on the state). Harvard Law School is a State Bar of California MCLE-approved provider. CLE credit is only available to American attorneys.



Professionals from around the world are invited to participate in the Internet Law Program.  However, courses are conducted in English only.  A working knowledge of English is necessary.

Casual dress is appropriate for all Program functions, classes and receptions. Participants are encouraged to dress for comfort. July in Cambridge can be warm and humid or damp and cool, so plan to bring light clothing along with a sweater or light weight jacket.


Harvard University has made a substantial commitment to making all of its programs and facilities accessible to disabled students.
