issues relating to technology and the Internet. The Clinic’s work

infrastructure; consumer protection, privacy, and compliance; cybercrime and youth online safety; general Internet business law; intellectual
property (including copyright, trademark, and patent); litigation and
amicus advocacy; online speech, media law, and the First Amendment; and

and hone their practice skills by managing projects, engaging directly
with clients, and receiving feedback and mentorship from instructors who are experienced practitioners in the field. Detailed information about
