Lawrence Lessig is director of the Edmond J. Safra Foundation Center for Ethics and a Professor of Law at Harvard Law School. With a focus on law and technology, especially copyright law, his current work addresses “institutional corruption”: relationships which are legal, even currently ethical, but which weaken public trust in an institution. The author of several books including Remix (2008), Free Culture (2004), and The Future of Ideas (2001), he has won numerous awards and was named one of Scientific American’s Top 50 Visionaries. He serves on several boards including Creative Commons, MAPLight, and Change Congress. Prior to returning to Harvard, he taught at Stanford Law School, where he founded the school’s Center for Internet and Society, and at the University of Chicago. He clerked for Judge Richard Posner on the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals and Justice Antonin Scalia on the U.S. Supreme Court and earned an MA in philosophy from Cambridge and a JD from Yale.
