Today we’re proud to announce that Ansel Halliburton has joined the Free Law Project Board of Directors. Ansel has already been contributing to Free Law Project for several years, and his experience as both a practicing lawyer and legal technologist will help steer us into the future.

Ansel has been involved in legal technology since 2006, when he joined a team at Stanford Law School to help build a comprehensive database of all federal intellectual property litigation. Now a lawyer, Ansel practices technology law in San Francisco. Ansel holds degrees from UC Berkeley and UC Davis School of Law, writes about technology and security for Lawyerist, and builds small robots.

Board members are selected for terms lasting two years.

We couldn’t be more delighted to welcome Ansel to the board,” stated Free Law Project Executive Director Michael Lissner. “Ansel brings the kinds of knowledge, experience, and smart thinking that will be invaluable to Free Law Project over the next few years.”
