Alicia Solow-Niederman

Associate Professor of Law

Professor Solow-Niederman’s scholarship explores how to regulate technologies in a way that reckons with social, economic, and political power. Focusing on algorithmic accountability, data governance, and information privacy, she evaluates how digital technologies, such as artificial intelligence, both challenge and offer opportunities to refine and reflect on regulatory approaches and underlying legal values. 

Her work has been published or is forthcoming in the Northwestern University Law Review, the Journal of Law & Innovation, the Southern California Law Review, the Berkeley Technology Law Journal and the Stanford Technology Law Review. She was selected as a winner of the 2017 Yale Law Journal Student Essay Competition for her piece on data breaches as well. 

After law school, she clerked in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia before serving as a Climenko fellow and lecturer on law at Harvard Law School. Previously, she was a fellow in artificial intelligence, law, and policy for UCLA Law’s Program on Understanding Law, Science, and Evidence (PULSE).
