Jeffrey Omari is the visiting assistant professor in the Center for Civil and Human Rights at Gonzaga University School of Law. In 2018, he earned a PhD in cultural anthropology from the University of California, Santa Cruz. His current research examines internet governance through the lens of Brazil’s new cyber law, the Marco Civil da Internet (MCI). Through its promotion of internet access as a civil right, protection of net neutrality, and its call for openness in the online realm, the MCI seeks to foster democratic internet governance in Brazil, a country known for its great social and economic inequality. Prior to joining Gonzaga, he was a Law and Social Science Doctoral Fellow at the American Bar Foundation. Before pursuing his PhD, he practiced music law in Atlanta and Los Angeles, respectively. Omari has published articles in the areas of internet governance and music law. He holds a Juris Doctor from the University of Illinois College of Law and a Bachelor of Arts from Morehouse College.
