Charlotte Tschider, 2018-2019 JHLI Faculty Fellow, Visiting Assistant Professor of Law, Nebraska College of Law
We are thrilled to announce that Charlotte Tschider completed her fellowship and is a Visiting Assistant Professor at the University of Nebraska’s College of Law. During Charlotte’s time as a Jaharis Faculty Fellow for the DePaul University College of Law (2018-2019), she had the unique opportunity to connect with many of her national and international colleagues and teach cutting-edge courses at the intersection of health law, intellectual property, and information technology.
When Charlotte joined DePaul University, the College of Law had recently embarked on a new focus for students at the intersection of health law and technology, developing specific courses in cybersecurity and data protection, as well as building out a plethora of new health law offerings. She had the unique opportunity to teach two of these courses -- Food and Drug Law, which incorporated many of my specific research interest in medical device regulation, and Healthcare Privacy and Cybersecurity, which integrated education in the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, international data protection standards, Food and Drug Administration cybersecurity requirements, and compliance program development. In these classes, students began to identify key overlaps and relationships between first-year courses, administrative law, and the practical aspects of maintaining compliance for the healthcare and insurance industries.
During her time at DePaul Law, she also engaged in many international and domestic conferences focused on this important intersection. In January 2019, Charlotte presented at the World Precision Medicine Conference on the role of big data in medical research, and in July 2019, she presented on artificial intelligence liability and global data protection laws at the International Conference on AI in Healthcare. I was also invited to participate in a symposium on Trust and Privacy in the Digital Age at the Washington University School of Law, part of their launch of The Cordell Institute for Policy in Medicine & Law, and Hofstra University’s symposium on Artificial Intelligence in Healthcare: The Ethical, Legal and Medical Implications.
We wish Charlotte much success in her new endeavor.
