Introducing Guest Blogger Mary-Rose Papandrea

I am thrilled to introduce Professor Mary-Rose Papandrea, who is an Associate Professor of Law at Boston College Law School.  Lucky for us, she will be guest blogging with us this month.  After graduating from Yale College and the University of Chicago Law School, Professor Papandrea clerked for Hon. David H. Souter of the U.S. Supreme Court, as well as Hon. Douglas H. Ginsburg of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit and Hon. John G. Koeltl of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York.  Following her clerkships, Professor Papandrea spent several years as a litigator at Williams & Connolly LLP in Washington, D.C., where she specialized in First Amendment and media litigation.  At Boston College, she teaches courses in constitutional law, media law, civil procedure, and national security.  Professor Papandrea has served as Chair of the American Association of Law Schools Mass Communication Law Section (2010-11) and National Security Law Section (2011-12).  Her research and writing focuses on First Amendment and media law topics, including restrictions on the dissemination of national security information, the reporter’s privilege, and the free speech rights of public employees and students.  She is currently writing a book about national security information and the media in the digital age.  In addition, she has recently become a co-author on a media law casebook titled Media and the Law (Lexis Nexis) (with Lee Levine, David Kohler, David Ardia, and Dale Cohen), with a revised second edition forthcoming in March 2013.

Her most recent publications include:
