Elon Law Professor Enrique Armijo was named to the Board of Academic Advisors for The Free State Foundation on September 24.
The Free State Foundation, an independent, nonpartisan D.C.-based think tank, advocates regularly before Congress, the Federal Communications Commission and the courts on issues concerning communications and other high-tech law and policy. Current issues on the FSF’s advocacy docket include network neutrality, revisions to the 1934 Communications Act and administrative law reform. Other FSF Academic Advisors include notable legal scholars such as Eugene Volokh of UCLA Law School, Richard Epstein of NYU’s Law School, William Van Alstyne of William and Mary’s Marshall-Wythe Law School and Christopher S. Yoo of the University of Pennsylvania Law School.
“I am very pleased that Enrique Armijo has agreed to join FSF’s distinguished Board of Academic Advisors,” said Randolph May, President of The Free State Foundation. “His addition to the academic board further enhances the Free State Foundation’s already strong capabilities in the area of communications law and policy, regulatory economics and constitutional law. I am grateful to have such a prominent group of scholars on the board, and I value their contributions to FSF’s activities and their expertise.”
Armijo’s current research explores the government provision of digital speech spaces such as municipal Wi-Fi connections, Internet access in public spaces and related technology, and how the First Amendment protects citizens using those spaces to communicate—in particular whether and when it is acceptable for the state to block content or people from these spaces. He teaches in the areas of Constitutional, Communications, Media, and Administrative Law.
