David Levine reappointed as a Visiting Research Collaborator at Princeton 

Elon Law Professor David S. Levine, an affiliate scholar at Stanford Law School’s Center for Internet and Society, has been reappointed to the position of Visiting Research Collaborator at Princeton University’s Center for Information Technology Policy for 2015-16.

The Center for Information Technology Policy (CITP) is an interdisciplinary center at Princeton University, drawing together expertise in technology, engineering, public policy and the social sciences. CITP’s research, teaching and events address digital technologies as they interact with society.

Levine’s current scholarship is focused on evidence-based decision-making theory in public policy and the ongoing public access problem in international trade negotiations. He will continue this work in the coming year, as well as examine the related informational secrecy challenge in robotics’ operation and deployment, including unmanned aerial vehicles (also known as drones).

At Elon Law, David S. Levine teaches courses in intellectual property law, Internet law, trade secrets and contracts. His scholarship focuses on the operation of intellectual property law at the intersection of technology and public life, specifically information flows in the lawmaking and regulatory process and intellectual property law’s impact on public and private secrecy, transparency and accountability. Levine is the founder and host of Hearsay Culture on KZSU-FM (Stanford University), an information policy, intellectual property law and technology talk show for which he has recorded over 200 interviews since May 2006.
