Przemysław Pałka is an Associate Research Scholar at Yale Law School; formerly Yale’s Fellow in Private Law (2018-2020). His research interests encompass private law (property and contract), consumer and personal data protection law, and intersections of law, inequality and new technologies. In particular, he studies novel types of objects of legal relations (digital and virtual items, data), privately created digital regulatory environments (terms of service, digital force, regulation through code), and modes in which legal discourses conceptualize and internalize these phenomena. Before joining Yale Law School, Przemysław studied law at the University of Warsaw, Poland, and completed his Ph.D. at the European University Institute in Florence, Italy, where he later worked as a research associate, studying opportunities and challenges that artificial intelligence poses to consumer law and policy.
