One of the Berkman Klein Center’s top priorities is education. Faculty, fellows, and staff affiliated with the Center engage in teaching activities that address complex legal, technological, social, and business issues; examine questions of both public and private law; and integrate relevant international and domestic legal considerations from a global perspective.

These efforts reach students from Harvard Law School and various other Harvard University graduate programs (including the Harvard Graduate School of Design and School of Engineering and Applied Sciences), Harvard College, and Harvard Extension School, as well as interested members of the general public.

The Center places a premium on innovation in pedagogy, with an emphasis on interdisciplinarity, peer-learning, and mentorship. The Digital Problem Solving Initiative serves as one example of a novel teaching and learning initiative, offering participants an opportunity to enhance and cultivate competency in various digital literacies as teams engage with research, design, and policy relating to the digital world The Berkman Klein Center also hosts Harvard Law School’s Cyberlaw Clinic, a first-of-its-kind law school clinical program founded in 1999. The program is designed to offer students real-world opportunities to advise clients on legal issues relating to technology, intellectual property, privacy, online speech, and the like, under the close supervision of practicing attorneys.

The Berkman Klein Center seeks to develop and deploy technology that enhances educational opportunities for instructors and learners alike. The H2O online textbook platform, developed by Faculty Chair Jonathan Zittrain, demonstrates the Center’s commitment to building tools that allow students and their teachers to engage with course materials.

Finally, the Berkman Klein Center prioritizes engagement not just with Harvard students, or within the academic community more generally, but with the broader public. Efforts such as the Center’s reading group series and the online CopyrightX course taught by Director Terry Fisher reach a wide audience and invite a diverse range of participants to wrestle with issues at the heart of the Center’s work.

Below, this list of Berkman Klein-affiliated courses represents a partial list of these offerings.
