Salome Viljoen

Affiliated Fellow

Salomé is an  Assistant Professor of Law at Michigan Law School. She is interested in how information law structures inequality and how alternative legal arrangements might address that inequality. Salomé’s current work is on the political economy of social data. She is interested in what legal status social data enjoys, what legal interests it implicates, and how the law does (and should) regulate its creation and use. Salomé’s academic work has appeared in the Yale Law Journal and the University of Chicago Law Review Online, as well as in technical venues such as the ACM Conference on Fairness, Accountability and Transparency. She also writes essays and articles for places like Nature, the GuardianLogic Magazine and Phenomenal World.
