Professor Zittrain is soliciting applications from students interested
in a fall placement at the Cyberlaw Clinic at the Berkman Center in
conjunction with his winter-term 2010 "Cyberlaw: Difficult Problems"
course, which will be taught at Stanford Law School (HLS students will
have air transportation and lodging in Silicon Valley provided during
the January term), seeks to explore difficult problems in cyberlaw,
presented by guests who must grapple with them. Guests will include
academics, technologists, businesspeople, regulators, and social
entrepreneurs whose puzzles may require solutions that span disciplines
and approaches. We are currently looking to choose one student who will
be granted early enrollment in the Difficult Problems class as well as
enrollment in the Cyberlaw Clinic next fall. The fall Clinical work
will involve research and preliminary identification of a set of
challenging cyberlaw puzzles and potential guests who could present them
in January, as well as overall organization and construction of the
class. These puzzles will include a variety of cutting-edge issues
faced in the real-world by researchers, businesses, NGOs, government entities and others. The
student who is selected will meet once or twice with Prof. Zittrain
before the current semester ends (or over the summer if you are in
Cambridge), and will then work closely next fall with Clinic staff and
remotely with Prof. Zittrain, who will be visiting at Stanford.
To apply, please complete the web form and upload your
resume or CV there, as soon as possible, but no later than Friday, May
15. If you need room to provide any additional information, such as
enrollment in joint degree or LL.M. programs or the like, please add an
extra paragraph at the end of your entry in the statement of interest box.
If you have questions about the substance or logistics of the Clinic
placement or the winter course before you apply, please contact Phil
Malone at the Cyberlaw Clinic (firstname.lastname@example.org).
