Engagement with the world is a key feature and object of Harvard Law School’s mission. We feature content on the HLS website that highlights how HLS faculty, programs and students are having an immediate impact within the legal profession, at the national and international levels, and in the lives of individuals. Typically our featured stories contain embedded video or slideshows, multiple photos and several additional side stories or related content.

The Office of Communications also provides guidance on working with campus and mainstream news media.

If you would like assistance in publicizing events or newsworthy information (such as academic scholarship or faculty/student/program achievements or initiatives), or if you would like your news to be considered for HLS editorial coverage, please contact us at editorial@lists.law.harvard.edu.
