Morgan Weiland is a JD-PhD student pursuing the first joint degree between Stanford Law School and Stanford’s Communication Department. She is also a Stanford Graduate Fellow and a Student Fellow at Stanford’s Center for Internet and Society.
This summer (2013), Weiland will be a legal intern at the Electronic Frontier Foundation.
Her research focuses on the intersection of American journalism and digital technologies, specifically investigating how rapidly evolving networked technologies impact the creation and delivery of a public good, journalism and a free press, and how these changes impact the conditions for democratic participation and media accountability.
Before coming to Stanford, Weiland worked at Media Matters for America as a Research Project Manager during the 2008 election and was the point person during the health care reform debate. She has a BA with honors in Political Science and Cinema & Media Studies from Carleton College.
