Information for Prospective Students

Harvard Law School students may enroll in the Cyberlaw Clinic during the fall, winter, or spring terms. Enrolled students are not employees of the Clinic but, rather, work under the supervision of practicing attorneys for course credit on matters relating to law and technology. The clinical experience is focused both on client service and on pedagogy, as students are trained and mentored by their clinical supervisors.

Students may register for the Cyberlaw Clinic during the fall or spring for three, four, or five credits or the winter for two credits.  The Clinic strongly encourages students to enroll for four credits during the fall and spring to ensure the fullest experience, but three-credit enrollments are acceptable if that is all that a student’s schedule will allow.  Students must work an average of four hours per week, per credit for which they are enrolled.  Please contact Cyberlaw Clinic staff if you have any questions about credits and expected time commitments.

Students enrolling in the clinic for the first time must also concurrently enroll in the Cyberlaw Clinic Seminar, a two-credit course aimed at enhancing the practice skills of clinic students while informing them on the substantive legal issues that make up the Clinic practice.

Enrollment for the 2016-17 academic year in now complete.  2017-18 academic year enrollment will begin in spring 2017. For updated information on registration and clinical policies for all Harvard Law School clinics, please visit the HLS Office of Clinical and Pro Bono Programs web page.

The Cyberlaw Clinic usually accepts a small number of summer interns. Application information for summer 2017 internships will be available on the Berkman Center website in late-2016 or early-2017.
