Sarah Lamdan is a Professor of Law at CUNY School of Law who specializes in information law and policy across the spectrum from open government to personal privacy. She also has a master’s degree in library science and legal information management. Along with teaching administrative law, data privacy, and a really fun freedom of information law seminar, Sarah also works with open access and data privacy groups. She is a member of the Environmental Data & Governance Initiative, an IOI (Invest in Open Infrastructure) council member, and a Senior Fellow with SPARC (the Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition). Sarah’s book, Data Cartels, which analyzes the transition of publishers and electronic database providers to data analytics firms, was published by Stanford University Press. When she’s not thinking about information law and policy, Sarah is probably slow-running, fast-knitting, or hanging out with her dogs.
