IPR is excited to announce that Andrew Jay Schwartzman will join the “Communications, Technology and the Public Interest” practice of the clinic as the Benton Senior Counselor.
Andy brings to the clinic his vast knowledge and expertise in this field as former head of Media Access Project, a public interest law firm that brought many cases on which the broader public interest communications practice now relies. He has been a constant figure in the fight for civil rights and civil liberties in communications, and has worked tirelessly to ensure a thriving media ecosystem. He is currently on the FCC’s Advisory Committee on Diversity in the Digital Age, and teaches at Johns Hopkins University. The issues Andy will work on include media ownership, prison phones, and political advertising.
