Who We Are

We are more than a little bit geeky — just as comfortable with computer code as with the U.S. Code. We revel in the disruption at the intersection of law and technological innovation. Working on cutting-edge tech policy and law issues and referred by the most prominent legal and policy centers in America, our members and fellows are the vanguard of the burgeoning Internet law and policy ecosystem.

Pun intended, our mixers bring together early career professionals — lawyers and non-lawyers alike — with a passion for technology law and policy over drinks and geeky events.

The Foundry hosts regular workshops exploring new technology tools that promise to disrupt policymaking and legal practice.

Speakers Bureau

The Foundry offers a speakers bureau of emerging technology law and policy experts, available for media and speaking engagements on a variety of Internet law and policy topics.
