Barbara van Schewick is an Assistant Professor of Law at Stanford Law School and an Assistant Professor of Electrical Engineering (by courtesy) at Stanford’s Department of Electrical Engineering. She is the Faculty Director of Stanford Law School’s Center for Internet and Society. Van Schewick’s research focuses on the economic, regulatory, and strategic implications of communication networks. In particular, she explores how changes in the architecture of computer networks affect the economic environment for innovation and competition on the Internet, and how the law should react to these changes. This work has made her a leading expert on the issue of network neutrality. Her book "Internet Architecture and Innovation" will be published by MIT Press this spring. Prior to joining the Stanford Law faculty, van Schewick was a senior researcher at the Technical University Berlin, Germany, and a nonresidential fellow of the Center for Internet and Society. Van Schewick has advised the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research on innovation and technology policy and worked with the German Federal Network Agency on spectrum policy. From August 2000 to November 2001, she was the first residential fellow at the Center for Internet and Society.
