It's not too late to register for the Lecture and Discussion Series

The weekly lessons in this discussion series will begin with a hypothetical situation described by Professor Miller. We will ask you to begin thinking about the legal and technical problems presented by reading a selection of materials we have collected. We will then open discussion forums for each group of participants led by a law school student Teaching Fellow. You will be invited to ask questions, raise concerns, and offer your own suggested solutions. The Teaching Fellows will also ask you questions in these forums and share your responses with other participants. Each lesson will conclude with a realtime chat with Professor Miller or an invited guest.

The links in the side navigation bar correspond to these sections of the weekly lessons:

The Berkman Center is presenting these series to the Internet public as a forum for learning and discussion. As part of our own research in cyberspace, we are experimenting with software for online communication and will be trying various forms of interaction throughout the series. Please bear in mind the experimental nature of this offering, especially in the early weeks.

We look forward to working with you.
