Welcome to the iLaw 2011 Wiki!
|Important Program Information|
The Berkman Center for Internet & Society is very pleased to offer the iLaw 2011 Program, which will take place Tuesday, September 6th - Friday, September 9th. This wiki will serve as a repository for information and materials related to iLaw 2011. Here, you will find the iLaw Program Schedule, information about individual program sessions, required and recommended reading assignments, final student projects, and Program Logistics.
iLaw 2011 will be video recorded. All audience members, presenters, and other participants are required to sign a consent and release form (per the University's policy) prior to attending iLaw 2011. For more information, please visit Audio and Video Waivers. If you do not wish to be recorded please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note that iLaw 2011 is a Harvard Law School class that is closed to the public. We received an enormous amount of interest in this year's program. For this reason, we ask that all registered participants commit to attending all sessions on all days -- the evening events, however, are optional.

iLaw 2011 features a mixture of interactive lectures, roundtable-style and moderated discussions led by Harvard Law School faculty members, Berkman Center researchers, fellows, and special guests. Three types of substantive topical areas will be covered: (1) "Thematic Pillars" (the foundational topics and theories of iLaw), (2) "Cross-sectional Themes" (which explore overlapping themes below the foundational surface), and (3) Case Studies (cases and examples of themes in practice). Below are links to pages on this wiki categorized by topical area. These pages contain session overviews and links to the required reading assignments, recommended readings, and related Cross-sectional and Case Study sessions.
Note to HLS students: We’ve included a rather large number of readings on the wiki for each session. Although some of the session readings are described as “required,” faculty members and session leaders do not wish these assignments to be onerous. To this end, students will not be expected to have closely read all of the required materials prior to each session; however, students should at least familiarize themselves with the concepts contained therein. Additional “recommended” readings are included for those who wish to do a deeper dive into a particular topic area; we also hope these materials will also be useful for future research and student assignments.
Each day will end with an optional evening event. These events will offer unique opportunities to interact with Berkman Center and Harvard faculty, staff, fellows, and members of the community. Students and audience members are strongly encouraged to attend these events and learn more about the Berkman Center and it's diverse, enthusiastic community.
