Under the umbrella of the Information Society Project (ISP), founded by Professor Jack Balkin in 1997, Yale Law School has eight different paths for involvement in media, technology, and information law. Yale is home to the top First Amendment scholars in the country and to numerous faculty members who write about intellectual property law, information policy, and privacy law. In addition, Yale ISP resident and student fellows work on issues ranging from patenting the human genome to location tracking, and go on to become top scholars in their fields. Beyond the academic year, Yale Law students spend their summers at public interest organizations like the ACLU and the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) and work with legal teams at newspapers. After graduation, they place at top firms, where a strong network of Yale graduates work in media law and related fields, and at public interest organizations or journalistic institutions like the New York Times.

The ISP brings together students, scholars, activists, and policymakers to define problems and identify solutions on a wide range of topics related to the information society. The ISP hosts conferences, produces scholarship, sponsors courses, engages in policy activism, and develops and spreads ideas.
