Studying Jewish law is relevant today, Bamberger said, because in many ways, it can be seen as a code of ethics governing interactions between people. “On top of that is a rich set of laws dealing with the entire spectrum of what we think law is about, from torts to contracts to copyrights to property,” he said. “It expands how one might think about acting in every context of life.”

She visited the Bay Area last week to give the keynote speech at the opening of U.C. Berkeley Law’s newly launched Institute for Jewish Law and Israeli Law, Economy and Society.

I find the Deirdre Mulligan and Kenneth Bamberger paper, Privacy on the Books and on the Ground, eye opening in this respect. In what is surely one of the most important and influential papers on privacy over the past decade, the authors identify stark differences between the development of the profession on both sides of the Atlantic.

That plan takes the shape of two basic programs, one focused on traditional Jewish law; the other concentrated on modern Israeli law and society. “Each arises out of experiences in the law school that dovetail quite well with the strengths of the [larger] campus,” said Kenneth Bamberger.

Kenneth Bamberger, Christopher Edley Announce Launch of New Institute

“The law school has deep strengths in both the study of Jewish law—and religious law more generally—and also focuses on the study of Israel,” said Kenneth A. Bamberger…. “As more people got involved, it seemed like a real contribution could be made to those engaged in the discourse around Jewish law and Israel on campus.”

-Jewish Telegraphic Agency, February 24, 2011

Christopher Edley … said in a news release that the institute “builds on the law school’s historic strengths in religious law. It also capitalizes on our cross-disciplinary and comparative approach to law and society and our longstanding collaborations with Israeli scholars and academic institutions.”

“I think it’s really going to transform the atmosphere on campus,” said Christopher Edley … who recounted stories of students who felt intimidated by their peers or professors while discussing Israel and Palestine. “It’s brought tears to my eyes. This is not what you expect of a world-class university.”

UC Berkeley has long collaborated with Israeli scholars and universities, and the institute will help centralize those studies, said Kenneth Bamberger…. “Our approach to issues that people care deeply about is to provide an open forum. We welcome the diversity of views around these issues.”

-The National Law Journal, February 24, 2011 by Karen Sloan

“These are fast-emerging fields in higher education,” Dean Christopher Edley said in a written statement. “The Gilbert Foundation’s generous gift allows us to bolster existing Jewish and Israel programming on campus with the added perspective of legal scholarship, and to better compete with comparable offerings at our peer universities.”

“We’re working to support broader discourse on campus around Jewish and Israel-related scholarship,” said institute faculty director Kenneth Bamberger. “We want to better serve UC students interested in studying these topics in-depth.”

-The Daily Californian, February 28, 2011 by Courtney Moulds

“The goal is to take a lot of existing strengths that we have both in the law school and also in the rest of the university and provide an institutional home,” said Kenneth Bamberger.

Much as is occurring this year, the FTC and Commerce Departments played complementary roles in the mid- to late-1990s in developing privacy policy…. The history of the FTC’s involvement in this period has been well discussed in work by Kenneth Bamberger and Deirdre Mulligan.

Kenneth Bamberger and Deirdre Mulligan Advocate for Multi-Stakeholder Privacy Policies

National Telecommunications and Information Administration, April 29, 2010 by Lawrence E. Strickling

As privacy scholars Deirdre Mulligan and Ken Bamberger (University of California, Berkeley I-School and Law School) recently wrote, this type of dynamic, hybrid system in which both private and public stakeholders participate may well yield actual privacy practices that are more responsive to evolving consumer privacy expectations than would a traditional rulemaking system.
