Welcoming Back Guest Blogger Mary Anne Franks!
I am thrilled to welcome back Professor Mary Anne Franks as a guest blogger–I am such a huge fan of her work so it is an extra special thrill for me to have her back to CoOp. Professor Franks is an Associate Professor of Law at the University of Miami School of Law, where she teaches criminal law, criminal procedure, family law, and a seminar on bias. She holds a law degree from Harvard Law School and a D.Phil. and M.Phil. from Oxford University, where she studied on a Rhodes scholarship. She has also taught at Harvard University and the University of Chicago Law School. Her recent publications include When Bad Speech Does Good, Lies, Damned Lies, and Judicial Empathy, and Sexual Harassment 2.0. Professor Franks is currently working with a group of lawyers, scholars, and activists to develop effective legal approaches to revenge porn and other forms of non-consensual sexual use. The title of her latest project is Against Mercy: Automated Law Enforcement as Enlightenment.
