CYBER IMPACT: Professors Jennifer Daskal and Laura DeNardis Present Their Work on Cross-Border Cyber Regulation to Judges of the Second Circuit
June 7, 2019
On Thursday, June 6, American University Washington College of Law Professor Jennifer Daskal and Professor Laura DeNardis from the School of Communication presented their work at the annual Second Circuit Judicial Conference during a panel entitled, "The Internet is Everywhere and Nowhere: Extraterritorial Law and the Global Regulation of Data."
The event took place Mohonk Mountain House in New Paltz, New York, and garnered a packed room of judges from across the second Circuit, including the full array of appellate, district court, and magistrate judges. The conference featured a conversation with Honorable Ruth Bader Ginsburg on topics ranging from "human rights and federal courts" to "adjudicating global insolvencies."
Professor DeNardis opened up the presentation with a detailed explanation of the underlying infrastructure of the Internet and the ways in which this technical architecture crosses borders and constructs new policy problems. Professor Daskal presented on two specific legal and policy problems arising from ways in which data moves and is stored across borders: law enforcement access to data and speech regulation online.
Yale Law School professor Oona Hathaway moderated the discussion, which also featured Deputy Assistant Attorney General of the Department of Justice Bruce Swartz.
