Alan Rozenshtein: "Silicon Valley's Speech"

April 17, 2019
Noon - 1:15 p.m.
Lubar Commons, 7200 Law School

Professor Alan Rozenshtein, University of Minnesota Law School, will discuss his project "Silicon Valley’s Speech," as part of our Faculty Exchange Series. In his talk, Prof. Rozenshtein will explore how technology companies use free-speech arguments to defend against government regulation and public pressure across a variety of policy areas. This project looks across substantive areas where companies have used speech arguments — including privacy, surveillance, antitrust, content moderation, and consumer protection — and provides a lens through which to analyze legal and policy areas that are generally considered in isolation.

Prof. Rozenshtein joined the University of Minnesota Law School as a visiting professor in 2017 and will continue as an Associate Professor of Law starting in summer 2019. He is also an affiliate with the Berkman Klein Center for Internet and Society at Harvard University and a member of the Scholars Strategy Network. From Oct. 2014 to April 2017, he served as an attorney advisor in the Office of Law and Policy in the National Security Division of the U.S. Department of Justice, where his work focused on operational, legal, and policy issues relating to cybersecurity and foreign intelligence. From October 2016 to April 2017, he served as a special assistant United States attorney for the District of Maryland. During this time he taught cybersecurity at Georgetown Law.
