Regent University School of Law Professor James Duane has accepted an invitation to serve as a faculty associate at Harvard University’s Berkman Center for Internet & Society for the 2013-14 academic year. Read the press release here.

Duane will co-teach a course at Harvard Law School in the fall semester called “The American Jury,” and will assist in the creation of a website intended to communicate information to the American public about the theory and operation of the jury trial process.

“I am excited to work with others who share my passion for using the Internet and other forms of mass media to reach beyond the severe limitations of traditional legal scholarship,” Professor Duane says. “I am looking forward to collaborating with some of the finest minds in legal education.”

Founded in 1996, the Berkman Center is dedicated to better understanding and developing cyberspace. Its staff includes students, fellows, faculty, virtual architects, entrepreneurs and lawyers. Professor Duane is one of eight faculty associates that will join the Berkman Center for the 2013-2014 academic year. The staff also includes a number of fellows, returning faculty associates and affiliates.

A graduate of Harvard College and Harvard Law School, Professor Duane has taught at Regent Law since 1991, teaching Evidence, Civil Procedure, Trial Practice and Appellate Advocacy classes. Earlier this year, the U.S. House of Representative’s Committee on Oversight and Government Reform cited Professor James Duane’s public statements on whether IRS official Lois Lerner had waived her Fifth Amendment rights when she appeared before that Committee. He also appeared MSNBC to discuss that issue.
