The Berkman Klein Center for Internet & Society is a research center at Harvard University that focuses on the study of cyberspace. Founded at Harvard Law School, the center traditionally focused on internet-related legal issues. On May 15, 2008, the Center was elevated to an interfaculty initiative of Harvard University as a whole. It is named after the Berkman family, who owned the communications company The Associated Group. On July 5, 2016, the Center added “Klein” to its name following a gift of $15 million from Michael R. Klein, chairman of the Sunlight Foundation.
