Cardozo School of Law is making two important intellectual property lateral hires. Susan Crawford is a Professor of Law at the University of Michigan (currently on leave to work in the Obama Administration as a Special Assistant to the President for Science, Technology, and Innovation Policy as part of the National Economic Council. She is rejoining the Cardozo faculty; she started her academic career there in 2003. (She had previously been a partner at Wilmer.) Her focus is on communications law and the Internet. She will join Cardozo next winter. Brett Frischman is a Professor of Law at Loyola - Chicago. He has been a prolific and highly-regarded scholar at the intersection of intellectual property law and internet infrastructure. These two hires should be a significant boost for Cardozo's IP program and, in particular, its focus on cyberlaw.
