I’m delighted to introduce Professor Susan Freiwald who will be guest blogging with us this month. Professor Freiwald is a Professor of Law at the University of San Francisco School of Law where she teaches Cyberspace Law, Information Privacy Law, and Contracts. She received her B.A. and J.D. from Harvard. She served as the Books and Commentaries Editor of the Harvard Law Review. After law school, Freiwald clerked for Judge Amalya Kearse on the Second Circuit Court of Appeals. Freiwald worked as an applications (software) developer at Oracle Corporation in Silicon Valley prior to law school. She has written law review articles on the intersection of high technology and law, focusing primarily on online surveillance and the Fourth Amendment regulation of communications privacy. She has also written or co-written several amicus briefs in federal district and appellate courts, including in the Warshak case and in recent cases concerning Cell Site Location Information (CSLI). Along with EFF, she argued the CSLI case in front of a panel of the 3rd Circuit in February of 2010.
