168th Commencement: Watch Live
Professor Robert Heverly was recently elected chair of the Association of American Law Schools (AALS) Section on Internet and Computer Law.
Professor Heverly’s research and teaching interests focus primarily on the issues arising from the intersection of law, technology and society, and include Internet and Cyberspace Law, Intellectual Property Law, and legal ethics and the Internet, as well as torts, property and administrative law. He works frequently on projects, publications and presentations within these and other fields, and also serves as a frequent resource for the media.
Professor Heverly is currently involved in research projects involving drones, liability for cybersecurity breaches, and the legal issues likely to arise from human augmentation by technology (known as “The Cyborg Project”). In November of last year, he filed an amicus brief representing the flying public in the U.S. Supreme Court case of Department of Homeland Security v. MacLean, in which the court decided that an air marshal was protected as a whistleblower after he disclosed information to the press regarding the placement of air marshals on flights.
Professor Heverly received his B.A. at SUNY Oswego, his J.D. at Albany Law School, and his LL. M. at Yale Law School.
AALS is a nonprofit association comprised of 178 law schools that works to advocate and advance the legal education.
