Christopher Yoo has emerged as one of the nation’s leading authorities on law and technology.
Christopher S. Yoo is Professor of Law, Communication, and Computer and Information Science, and Director of the Center for Technology, Innovation, and Competition at the University of Pennsylvania.
His research focuses on exploring the insights that the principles of network engineering and the economics of imperfect competition can provide into 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.
He received his J.D. from Northwestern University, his M.B.A. from UCLA, and his A.B. from Harvard University.
