About

Yafit Lev-Aretz is an Assistant Professor of Law at Zicklin School of Business, Baruch College, City University of New York. Professor Lev-Aretz is also a research fellow at the TOW center at Columbia Journalism School.  As the digital environment constantly evolves, Professor Lev-Aretz studies self-regulatory regimes set by private entities and the legal vacuum they create. She is especially interested in the growing use of algorithmic decision-making, intrusive means of news dissemination, choice architecture in the age of big data, and the ethical challenges posed by machine learning and artificially intelligent systems. Her research also highlights the legal treatment of beneficial uses of data, such as data philanthropy and the data for good movement, striving to strike a delicate balance between solid privacy protection and competing values. Previously, Professor Lev-Aretz was a research fellow at the Information Law Institute at NYU, and an intellectual property fellow at the Kernochan Center for the Law, Media, and the Arts at Columbia University. Professor Lev-Aretz holds an SJD from the University of Pennsylvania Law School, an LLM from Columbia Law School, and an LLB from Bar-Ilan University in Israel.
