Católica Global School of Law and Católica Lisbon School of Law hired Giovanni De Gregorio as PLMJ Chair in Law & Technology. Giovanni will be moving from the University of Oxford, where he was a postdoctoral researcher working with the Programme in Comparative Media Law and Policy at the Centre for Socio-Legal Studies.

Giovanni shared that he is “really looking forward to becoming a member of this community”. He is the author of the monograph Digital Constitutionalism in Europe. Reframing Rights and Powers in the Algorithmic Society (Cambridge University Press 2022) and of numerous influential articles published in edited books and international journals. This, in his words, “is an important moment to focus on the constitutional challenges raised by the evolution of the digital age, and I am happy to have the chance to contribute to the understanding of these challenges”. Católica’s LL.M. Law in a Digital Economy, he added, “is definitely a first step to understand these transformations”.

“We couldn’t be more pleased to announce the appointment of Giovanni De Gregorio as PLMJ Chair at our school”, commented Dean Miguel Poiares Maduro on the new faculty member. “Giovanni is one of the most promising scholars of his generation, collecting prizes like no one else in his field of study. One more reason for more students and scholars to join our community of knowledge”.
