Jennifer Stisa Granick was recently named the new director of civil liberties at the Center for Internet and Society. The Daily Journal's Craig Anderson covered the story:

Jennifer Stisa Granick is returning to Stanford Law School's Center for Internet and Society as its director of civil liberties, focusing on government surveillance, national security and free-speech issues.

Granick, an Internet law expert who previously worked as the center's executive director, said she is starting her new full-time job on Monday.


Granick helped the company get organized and did administrative work there but said it does not need a full-time general counsel at this time. "It was a hysterically fun blip [in my career]," she said.

From 2010 to 2012, she worked at ZwillGen PLLC, where Worldstar was one of her clients, and at the San Francisco-based Electronic Frontier Foundation after leaving the Center for Internet and Society for the first time in 2007, after six years.

"Jennifer is a talented scholar and lawyer, who anticipated many of today's vexing challenges and helped chart the center's course during its genesis," said Stanford Law School Dean Larry Kramer in a prepared statement.

Granick took a couple of months off after leaving Worldstar and taught an Internet business law class at Stanford this spring with Richard Salgado, Google Inc.'s director of law enforcement and information security.
