Christina Koningisor

CKoningisor's picture

Professor Koningisor’s scholarship explores the intersection of media law, constitutional law, and local government law. She is interested in the ways that different legal regimes—from federal and state transparency statutes, to procedural rules, to state constitutions—alter the breadth and scope of secrecy and transparency in government. She is particularly interested in how new technologies have upended the information ecosystems that allow the press and the public to hold the government to account. Her scholarly work has appeared in the Northwestern University Law Review, the University of Pennsylvania Law Review, and the Yale Law Journal. Previously, Ms. Koningisor worked as a lawyer for the New York Times, a law clerk for Chief Judge Sidney Thomas on the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, a Fulbright Fellow in Kuwait, and a member of the editorial staff at the Atlantic magazine. She is a graduate of Yale Law School and Brown University.
