The Project

Jef’s project focused on finding active cases at the intersection of technology and First Amendment values – in particular free speech rights – and submit amicus briefs on behalf of Public Knowledge. By intervening in litigation on behalf of artists, consumers and citizens, Jef hoped to help protect the ability of everyone to speak freely in the digital age. And, by adding a litigation capability to the organization’s ongoing educational, admin law and grass-roots work (which his project included), he hoped to bring another important voice to the legal side of the fight.
