Christopher Yoo

Professor of Law and Communication
University of Pennsylvania Law School

Christopher Yoo has emerged as one of the nation's leading authorities on law and technology. His research focuses on how economic theories of imperfect competition are transforming the regulation of the Internet and other forms of electronic communications. He has been a leading voice in the "network neutrality" debate that has dominated Internet policy over the past several years. He is also pursuing research on copyright theory as well as the history of presidential power. He is the author (with Daniel F. Spulber) of Networks in Telecommunications: Economics and Law (Cambridge, 2009) and (with Steven G. Calabresi) of The Unitary Executive: Presidential Power from Washington to Bush (Yale, 2008). Yoo testifies frequently before Congress, the Federal Communications Commission, and the Federal Trade Commission.

Professor Yoo clerked for Justice Anthony M. Kennedy of the Supreme Court of the United States and Judge A. Raymond Randolph of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit and practiced with the law firm of Hogan & Hartson in Washington, D.C., under the supervision of now-Chief Justice John G. Roberts, Jr.
