Regent University School of Law Professor James Duane has accepted an invitation to serve as a faculty associate at Harvard University's Berkman Center for Internet & Society for the 2013-2014 academic year.

Duane will co-teach The American Jury course at Harvard Law School in the fall semester. He will also assist in creating a website intended to communicate information to the American public about the theory and operation of the jury trial process.

"I am excited to work with others who share my passion for using the Internet and other forms of mass media to reach beyond the severe limitations of traditional legal scholarship," said Duane. "I am looking forward to collaborating with some of the finest minds in legal education.

Founded in 1996, the Berkman Center is dedicated to better understanding and developing cyberspace. Its staff includes students, fellows, faculty, virtual architects, entrepreneurs and lawyers with Duane being one of eight faculty associates that will join the Berkman Center for this academic year.

A graduate of Harvard College and Harvard Law School, Duane has taught at Regent Law since 1991, teaching Evidence, Civil Procedure, Trial Practice and Appellate Advocacy classes.

Earlier this year, the U.S. House of Representative's Committee on Oversight and Government Reform cited his public statements on whether or not IRS official Lois Lerner had waived her Fifth Amendment rights in the congressional investigation.

His comments were also included in the online edition of New York Magazine, as well as articles in The Week, Politico and Yahoo! News.
