Professor Rebecca Scharf Quoted in Fast Company Article

Rebecca Scharf is an associate professor of law at the William S. Boyd School of Law.

On Oct. 30, she was quoted in a Fast Company article titled, "Nevada's Mission to Build the Detroit of Drones."

In the article, she said, "One of the important things we have to consider is how to protect information that comes from the data collected from drones.”

She continued, "When it comes to regulating drone use, they’d definitely have to look at urban areas very differently from other areas. If we had state legislation in place geared at protecting privacy, then we could have a real conversation about how people would be protected.”

Professor Scharf earned her J.D. in 1991 from Harvard Law School, where she served as an editor on the Journal on Legislation. Prior to coming to the Boyd School of Law, Professor Scharf worked as a senior attorney with the National Center for Law and Economic Justice (formerly known as the Welfare Law Center) in New York City, where she conducted class action impact litigation throughout the United States, primarily in the area of public benefits law.
