Lawrence Lessig holds a BA in economics, a BS in management, an MA in philosophy and a JD from Yale Law School. He occupies a unique place at the intersection of transformative ideas, citizen activism, and the future of law, digital technologies and democracy itself. His signature rapid-fire presentation style, known as the "Lessig Method" uses dynamic topography and thought-provoking visuals to seize attention and deeply inform.

Lessig, a New York Times bestselling author, first became known for developing the very foundations of Internet law, allowing the sharing of copyrighted content. Throughout his career, Lessig's farseeing ideas have drawn support from some of America's most important business and political leaders. He has garnered numerous honors and awards, including being named one of Scientific American's "Top 50 Visionaries." Each of Lessig's three TED talks has had more than one million views online. (TED is a nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks. TED began as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged.)
