It is with great pleasure that I share this news. John is a terrific guy, a prolific blogger, and a genuine leader in the field of Internet Law as well as the Web 2.0 revolution.
What Terry Fisher and the others don’t say is that this
appointment is to the FIRST Clinical Professorship of Law at Harvard
Law School. so this represents an institutional accomplishment for the
law school, as well as a personal one for John and a departmental one
for the Berkman Center for Internet & Society.
Actually, this is also an accomplishment for bloggers, given
that John is either the first or one of the first serious bloggers to
become a full member of the faculty.

Subject: [staff] John Palfrey
To all Berkman Center staff and fellows:
Thursday, the law school faculty voted to appoint John Palfrey as a
Clinical Professor of Law. It’s a rather extraordinary
accomplishment, especially for someone so early in his career.
Extraordinary, but richly deserved. I hope you will all join us
in offering John congratulations — and best wishes in his new position.
