Joining us for a very brief guest stint is Professor Francesca Bignami of Duke Law School. Francesca writes about international and comparative law issues, and her work focuses on rights and democracy in the European Union.
Francesca receceived has an A.B. from Harvard and Radcliffe Colleges; an M.Sc. from Oxford; and a JD from Yale, where she was an editor of the Yale Law Journal. She clerked for Judge Stephen F. Williams, U.S. Court of Appeals, D.C. Circuit; and served as a stagiare for Advocate General Philippe Léger of the European Court of Justice in Luxembourg. She also was a Fulbright Scholar at the European University Institute.
Francesca is Chair of the Rulemaking Advisory Group of the ABA Project on EU Administrative Law and is on the academic advisory board of the Electronic Privacy Information Center.
Francesca will be visiting us very briefly to post about the NSA surveillance program from an international law perspective. This is a dimension of the NSA surveillance issue that I have not yet seen addressed, and I’m really looking forward to Francesca’s insights.
