Lawrence Lessig Biography

Lawrence Lessig is the Roy L. Furman Professor of Law and Leadership at Harvard Law School, director of Harvard’s Edmond J. Safra Center for Ethics, and founder of Rootstrikers. As a professor at Stanford Law School, Lessig founded the school’s Center for Internet and Society. He has authored numerous books, including Republic, Lost and Free Culture. Lessig’s board service includes Creative Commons, AXA Research Fund, iCommons.org, the Sunlight Foundation, the Better Future Project, and Democracy Café. He has received the Free Software Foundation’s Freedom Award, Fastcase 50 Award, and was named one of Scientific American’s Top 50 Visionaries.

Speaking Topics
  • Expert On Culture

  • Ethics

  • Technology

  • We the People Must Fix America’s Corruption

    Corruption is at the heart of American politics, caused by the influence of money. Larry Lessig believes this is the most urgent issue we face as a nation – but recognizes that the dynamic of this sort of corruption is broader than Congress. It is the root problem that makes solving others so difficult. Think doctors taking money from drug companies; academics taking money to give public testimony. U.S. institutions as a whole have lost their way – lost effectiveness and the public’s trust. We, the people, must force lasting change on America’s broken system.

  • The Oxymoron of Internet Privacy

    The Internet revolution has come. Some say it has gone. Larry Lessig – who has spent 10 years calling for an overhaul of the copyright systems, which he asserts does not and never will make sense in the digital world – explains how it has produced a counterrevolution of potentially devastating power and effect. Creativity once flourished because the Net protected a commons on which widest range of innovators could experiment. But now, corporations have established themselves as virtual gatekeepers while Congress has rewritten copyright and patent laws to stifle creativity and progress. Lessig also talks about the oxymoron of Internet privacy. The solution, he says, lies in building an “identity layer” into the Internet, which would recreate the idea of Internet privacy, enabling more privacy and more security. With starkly different visions for the Internet continuing to develop, this era presents challenges – and opportunities – for those who wish to ensure the Internet remains a backbone of liberty and economic growth.
