IJPM Welcomes New Faculty Fellow Nina Iacono Brown

The Institute for the Study of the Judiciary, Politics, and the Media proudly welcomes Professor Nina Iacono Brown as our newest Faculty Fellow.


Nina Brown is an assistant professor at the Newhouse School. Brown teaches courses in communications and media law to Newhouse undergraduate and graduate students, as well as an introductory course about mass media and their functions. Brown’s scholarly interests focus on online speech, particularly on free speech concerns in a digital era and publisher immunity under Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act.

Brown began her career as a copywriter at a small advertising agency, and eventually held roles as the director of communications for a start-up technology company and the Associate Vice President of Brand Development at a Fortune 500 company. Brown then attended Cornell Law School. After several years practicing law, Brown joined the Newhouse faculty. She is a graduate of the Newhouse School.

We are very excited to have Professor Brown join us, and look forward to a wonderful ongoing relationship.
