168th Commencement: Watch Live
Associate Dean Antony Haynes joined the Albany Law School faculty, part of his mission was to build an innovative pathway around cybersecurity and data privacy. Today, only two years later, the law school offers a fully online
M.S. in Legal Studies with specialization in Cybersecurity and Data Privacy, as well as an online
LL.M. in Cybersecurity and Data Privacy Law and a J.D. concentration in Cybersecurity and the Law.
While Dean Haynes continues to improve the program, develop new courses, and teach Cybersecurity Law, he also stays engaged with the community through writing and speaking.
The Associate Dean for Strategic Initiatives and Information Systems, and Director of Cybersecurity and Privacy Law, recently published "The Ethical Duties of Technology Competence and Reasonable (Cyber) Security" in the Albany County Bar Association's February 2018 newsletter. He presented to lawyers the talk "Legal Ethics and Technology" for the Albany County Bar Association in February, and also recently participated on the Times Union Leadership Luncheon panel entitled “The Tech Economy: How the Capital Region Can Help the Industry Flourish” at Albany’s Hearst Media Center.

Late last year Dean Haynes gave an invited-speaker presentation to the Harvard Kennedy School of Government on “Immoral Software: How AI Embeds Human Bias.”
He earned his B.S. at the U.S. Air Force Academy, an M.S. in computer science from University of Illinois at Urbana/Champaign, and a J.D. at Georgetown University Law Center. Before joining academia, he served as an associate at the law firm Quinn Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan, LLP, in Washington, D.C., and before that at Williams & Connolly LLP, in Washington, D.C.
Dean Haynes also served as an Assistant Professor of Computer Science at the U.S. Air Force Academy, where he taught courses in programming, developed the Academy’s Information Assurance curriculum, and created the intercollegiate Cyber Defense Exercise.
