About the Geeks


Joshua Auriemma

Former appellate attorney turned Ph.D. candidate and legal writing, argument, and technology consultant.

Prior to practicing, I was a summer fellow at the Stanford Law School Center for Internet & Society, where I spent the majority of my time working on appellate copyright cases. At Stanford, I worked closely with Ryan Calo on the Consumer Privacy Project in advocating for increased consumer privacy protections. During law school, I externed for the University Intellectual Property Office and worked closely with the University’s general counsel in litigating patent disputes and various intellectual property issues.

My background prior to law school was in high-energy, particle, and laser physics. I worked for Fermilab and CERN on their respective colliders, and I worked as a DoD contractor, coding radar algorithms throughout undergrad.

Yeah. I’m a geek.

I am a third-year student at the University of Iowa College of Law. I worked for a municipal government for 10 years in communications and public relations before going to law school. I enjoy making websites and shooting and editing video, both of which I’ve done professionally. I’m interested in improving ways of delivering efficient, affordable and accessible legal services online. I’m also a mom, which keeps the stress of law school in perspective.

Also check out my blog at laurabergus.com, where I ramble about law school, life and social media issues.

Mind if I link to your blog on mine? I think you have a wealth of information that can be extremely helpful to incoming students, such as myself!

It’s a toss up between faster but more unreliable speeds as opposed to slower but reliable speeds.
That’s just simple stuff, but that makes a big difference.

I’m not talking only about the eating of physical food.
