The Office of Communications assists students, faculty and staff with publicity for events and newsworthy initiatives. The most common way to gain publicity is through the HLS website, which features the latest news and events on the homepage.
Harvard Law School offers a wide range of services and resources for members of the Harvard Law School community who are planning events on campus. Visit the Events at HLS pages for an event planning checklist and information on planning a high-profile event.
To submit your event to the HLS Calendar, please fill out the event publicity form. All submissions should contain a brief description that clearly explains your event or initiative. Proper submission to the calendar will also ensure that the event is included in the daily HLS events e-newsletter, calendar@Law.
For your event to be featured in the Featured Events section of the HLS homepage, the listing must already be submitted to and approved for the HLS Calendar. Announcements must be submitted a week in advance, and given the high volume of material, not all can be featured on the homepage.
The HLS Communications Office maintains the campus video displays and will work with you to create a graphic announcement to promote your event and increase attendance. These graphics run next to a calendar of upcoming events. At least one week before your event, fill out the "Publicity on Campus Video Screens" section of the project intake form with event details, including title, location, time, speakers, and a short description. We will follow up with you to request images, including photos or logos. Please allow at least two days for the image to be created and posted.
If you would like a poster to promote your event around campus, please complete the "Graphic Design" section of the project intake form.
If you would like to work with campus or mainstream news media to publicize your event, or if you would like your news to be considered for HLS editorial coverage, please visit our News Coverage page.
If you would like to photograph or record audio/video at your event, please visit our Photography and Multimedia page for resources and guidelines.
