Milstein Conference Suite, Wasserstein Building, Harvard Law School

Over the last five years, hundreds of researchers, journalists, activists, and scholars from a variety of fields have come together at Harvard University's Edmond J. Safra Center for Ethics, under the direction of Lawrence Lessig, to investigate, map, and find solutions for institutional corruption around the world.

On May 1-2, the project will culminate with a two-day conference to celebrate the accomplishments of the Lab and point the way forward. Join us as we present the findings of the Lab in fields from pharma to academia to Wall Street to K Street and beyond.
