Alicia Solow-Niederman is an associate professor of law at The George Washington University Law School. Her research focuses on how to regulate emerging technologies, such as artificial intelligence, in a way that reckons with social, economic, and political power. With an emphasis on algorithmic accountability, data governance, and information privacy, Professor Solow-Niederman explores how digital technologies can both challenge longstanding regulatory approaches and expose underlying legal values.

Professor Solow-Niederman’s work has been published or is forthcoming in the Harvard Journal on Law & Technology, the Northwestern University Law Review, the Southern California Law Review, and the Berkeley Technology Law Journal, among other law reviews and peer-reviewed journals. Her piece on data breaches was selected as a winner of the 2017 Yale Law Journal Student Essay Competition. Professor Solow-Niederman is a member of the Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC) Advisory Board. She is also a visiting fellow at the Yale Law School Information Society Project, where she has worked with the Media and Freedom Information Access Clinic on a series of FOIA requests concerning state government use of AI.
