Event Description

Molly Land is a Professor of Law at the University of Connecticut School of Law. Drawing on her human rights expertise and background as an intellectual property litigator, Professor Land’s scholarship focuses on the effect of new technologies on human rights fact-finding, advocacy, and enforcement, as well as the role of human rights norms and framing strategies in organizing around human rights issues. Her current work explores the extent to which human rights law can provide a foundation for claims of access to the Internet as well as the opportunities and challenges for using new technologies to achieve human rights objectives. Professor Land’s articles have been published in the Yale, Harvard, and Michigan journals of international law, among other places, and she speaks and lectures widely on the relationship between technology and human rights advocacy. She has also authored several human rights reports, including a report for the World Bank on the role of new technologies in promoting human rights.

Prior to beginning her career in the academy, Professor Land was an associate at Faegre & Benson LLP in Minneapolis, where she represented clients in intellectual property disputes, and a fellow at Minnesota Advocates for Human Rights. She clerked for the Honorable Denise Cote of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York.
