Keynote Speaker
Jennifer Urban

Chair, California Privacy Protection Agency
Clinical Professor of Law, UC Berkeley School of Law

Jennifer M. Urban is the chair of the California Privacy Protection Agency (CPPA) and a clinical professor of law at UC Berkeley School of Law, where she is director of policy initiatives at the Samuelson Law, Technology & Public Policy Clinic. Her research focuses on information policy: intellectual property, privacy and data protection, and security. She regularly collaborates with technologists and academics in disciplines other than law to develop empirically grounded understandings of how new technologies and the regulatory structures around them interact with civil liberties, innovation, and creative expression.  

Urban joined the Berkeley Law faculty in 2009. Prior to that, she founded and directed the USC Intellectual Property & Technology Law Clinic at the University of Southern California, Gould School of Law. Before that, she was the Samuelson Clinic’s first fellow and an attorney with the Venture Law Group in Silicon Valley. She graduated from Cornell University with a B.A. in biological science (concentration in neurobiology and behavior) and from Berkeley Law with a J.D. (intellectual property certificate). She was the Annual Review of Law and Technology editor while a student at Berkeley Law, and received the Berkeley Center for Law and Technology Distinguished Alumni Award in 2003.
