Collaborations across Georgetown are a joy - here are some current projects
FOO LAW LAB
Paul Ohm and I started the Foo Law Lab in fall 2022 as the pilot effort trying to do for technology students what law clinics have done for generations of law students. We work with partner organizations on technology policy issues, problems, and questions and intend to offer Foo Law Lab participation as a course in Spring 2023 with support from the Fritz Fellowship program and the Public Interest Technology University Network.
More details coming soon. If you're an organization interested in working with us, please reach out!
Masters of Law & Tech
Georgetown Institute for Tech Law + CCT
Calling all computer scientists, engineers, Hill staff, entrepreneurs, and civil society advocates: Georgetown Tech Law offers a new Master of Law & Technology degree that equips non-lawyers to tackle the many tough challenges on the technology law and policy horizon. In partnership with CCT, the program offers some of the best tech law and policy courses in the world, in the heart of DC, with the BEST professors around.
A volume (co-edited by me and Amanda Levendowski, a clinician at Georgetown Law Center) exploring how gender, race, sexuality, disability + class shape cyberspace and the laws that govern it.

Redesigning the Governance Stack: New Institutional Approaches to Information Economy Harms
Redesigning the Governance Stack is a multi-year effort to reinvent the institutions and tools we use to govern technology and technology companies. With seed funding from the McCourt Institute, the project team at Georgetown University is led by PIs Julie Cohen, Paul Ohm, and me and engages with top experts in technology law, administrative law, computer science, technology studies, communication, and political economy to develop concrete, actionable proposals. This is a “full stack” effort, encompassing short term implementation details and extending down to rethink fundamental principles of regulatory organization and operation.
Ethics Done Differently
I've always got something cooking with Georgetown's Ethics Lab. Run by philosophy professor Maggie Little, Ethics Lab serves a landing zone for my weird ideas, off-beat happenings, and thorny issues. I've engaged with Ethics Lab in salons as a Faculty Fellow, curriculum development as an instructor, and Fritz Fellow advisor. We've also worked together to support the Tech, Ethics, and Society program for undergraduates.
