The Information Society Project (ISP) is an intellectual center at Yale Law School. It supports a community of interdisciplinary scholars who explore issues at the intersection of law, technology, and society. Professor Jack Balkin founded the ISP in 1997 and serves as its Director. The ISP’s Executive Director is Rebecca Crootof.
The ISP hosts a core group of resident fellows, visiting fellows, Yale faculty, and student fellows, and fosters an international community of affiliated fellows working on cutting-edge issues. The ISP promotes discussions of law and technology issues through its speaker series, ideas lunches, and conferences; and it influences the development of law and policy through clinical work, amicus briefs, and scholarship. ISP alumni go on to become scholars, activists, and policymakers.
