Paul Ohm is a Professor of Law at the Georgetown University Law Center. He specializes in information privacy, computer crime law, intellectual property, and criminal procedure and serves as a faculty director for Georgetown’s Center on Privacy and Technology. In his work, Ohm tries to build new interdisciplinary bridges between law and computer science. His article “Broken Promises of Privacy: Responding to the Surprising Failure of Anonymization,” UCLA Law Review (vol. 57, 2010), has sparked an international debate about the need to reshape dramatically the way we regulate privacy. After graduating from the UCLA School of Law, he clerked for Judge Betty Fletcher of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. Before attending law school, Ohm worked for several years as a computer programmer and network systems administrator.
