UVA Law Interview with Danielle Citron

UVA Law Interview with Danielle Citron

Danielle K. Citron was recently interviewed by UVA School of Law about her work in cybersecurity and digital privacy over the last decade.   

Professor Citron spoke about her current work advising lawmakers on how to reform Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act of 1996, which has been used as a shield for internet companies who might otherwise face legal liability for user content. She discussed how she first got involved in the reform efforts; why this issue is so important in today’s landscape; how interpretation of the First Amendment has been influenced and reshaped by digital media; and more.  

Professor Citron is the Jefferson Scholars Foundation Schenck Distinguished Professor in Law at UVA Law, where she writes and teaches about privacy, free expression and civil rights. In 2019, she was named a MacArthur Fellow based on her work on cyberstalking and intimate privacy.
