Introducing Gaia Bernstein

I am honored to introduce this week's blogger, Associate Professor Gaia Bernstein of Seton Hall Law School. Professor Bernstein’s scholarship focuses on the inter-relations between technology, law and society. She has recently presented at leading conferences in the law & technology field, including LawTech at MIT and Vanderbilt's Evolutionary Analysis in Law Conference.

Professor Bernstein has examined the diffusion processes of new technologies, including both medical and communications technologies. Her teaching and research interests are in the areas of intellectual property, law and genetics, Internet law, information privacy law and reproductive technologies.

Prior to joining the Seton Hall faculty in 2004, Professor Bernstein was a fellow at the Engelberg Center of Innovation Law & Policy and at the Information Law Institute at the New York University School of Law. Her degrees include: a J.S.D. from the New York University School of Law, an LL.M. from Harvard Law School, a J.D. (Intellectual Property concentration with Honors) from the Boston University School of Law, and a B.A. in Psychology and Political Science (magna cum laude) from Tel Aviv University. Professor Bernstein practiced law at Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP in New York and at S. Horowitz & Co. in Israel.

Finally, I wish to thank Professor Bernstein, on behalf of all the participants, for developing both the overarching idea for this symposium, and refining its particular form. She was the organizer of the Law & Society Panel where this idea originated, and she has worked tirelessly to bring together a diverse group of scholars to make this project a reality. We're all indebted to her vision, persistence, and exceptional contributions to the law & technology field. I look forward to her posts.
