Aditya Bamzai, ’04, will teach Civil Procedure and a new course, Computer Crime Law.
Bamzai, who has recently argued high-profile national security cases for the U.S. Department of Justice in the federal courts of appeals, will join the University of Virginia School of Law faculty this fall as an associate professor of law. In addition to national security law, his expertise and interests include administrative law, federal courts and civil procedure.
Working as an appellate attorney in the department's National Security Division from 2013 until this year, Bamzai represented the United States on such issues as the legality of bulk telephone metadata collection (the Supreme Court case In Re EPIC), the authority of prosecutors to strike deals to punish corporate criminal defendants (the D.C. Circuit case U.S. v. Fokker Services B.V.), and the scope of statutes that implement biological and chemical weapons treaties (the Supreme Court case Bond v. U.S. and the Sixth Circuit case U.S. v. Levenderis).
A graduate of the University of Chicago Law School, where he was the editor-in-chief of the law review, Bamzai will teach Civil Procedure and a new course, Computer Crime Law — a lecture course that will cover the domestic legal architecture of cyberlaw and look at controversial privacy and security issues from all sides.
