Biography

Professor Koningisor’s scholarship explores the intersection of media law, constitutional law, and local government law. She is interested in the ways that different legal regimes—from federal and state transparency statutes, to procedural rules, to state constitutions—alter the breadth and scope of secrecy and transparency in government. She is particularly interested in how new technologies have upended the information ecosystems that allow the press and the public to hold the government to account
