Professor Ari Ezra Waldman Named a Finalist for a National Scholarly Writing Award

Professor Ari Ezra Waldman, a privacy law expert and the Director of NYLS’s Innovation Center for Law and Technology, is a finalist for a national writing award given by the Association of American Publishers (AAP).

His first book, Privacy as Trust: Information Privacy for an Information Age, is one of just six works nationwide named finalists in the “Anthropology, Criminology, and Sociology” category of the AAP’s Professional and Scholarly Excellence Awards.

There were more than 500 entries in this year’s annual competition, which recognizes books, journals, and digital products “of extraordinary merit that make a significant contribution to a field of study in a given year,” according to the AAP.

In December 2018, Professor Waldman won the Privacy Papers for Policymakers Award given by the Future of Privacy Forum. He was one of just five winners nationwide and was recognized for his paper, “Designing Without Privacy.”

The winners will be announced in early February.
