Center for Law, Information and Creativity (CLIC)

The Future Is Just A CLIC Away ...

The Center for Law, Information and Creativity (CLIC) combines the study of innovation and creativity with Northeastern University School of Law’s social justice mission.

CLIC is a unique environment attracting diverse scholars, lawyers, students, creators, innovators, start-up ventures and established companies to study the regulation of intellectual property and technology with the aim of promoting progress.

Faculty affiliated with CLIC teach courses and conduct research in information security, privacy regulation, entertainment and media law, intellectual property, internet and e-commerce, lawyering and entrepreneurship, and creative communities. Through the School of Law’s signature Cooperative Legal Education Program, CLIC provides guidance to students who seek internships with clients and organizations that are navigating the dynamic world of technology regulation, creative and scientific development, privacy, security and entrepreneurship.

Northeastern's intellectual property program was awarded an “A+” in the spring 2023 issue of preLaw magazine. The magazine takes into account a law school's breadth of curricular offerings when compiling the rankings. Northeastern Law has also been ranked as a Tier 1 “Privacy School” by the International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP).

CLIC aims to have a public impact through its research, teaching, program development and partnerships.
