Professor Donna Gregg is appointed a Fellow at Maryland Think Tank

Donna Coleman Gregg, a visiting faculty member at the Columbus School of Law for the 2009-2010 academic year and a key advisor to the Institute for Communications Law Studies, has been appointed an adjunct senior fellow of the Free State Foundation, a non-profit, nonpartisan free market-oriented think tank based in Potomac, MD.

In this new position, "I'll be contributing scholarly articles and other pieces to Free State Foundation publications and participating in FSF policy conferences and educational seminars," said Gregg.

Her first scholarship for the think tank, "The Hazards of Prescriptive Regulatory Intervention in a Rapidly Changing Marketplace," was published in Perspectives from FSF Scholars on Sept. 8, 2009, and was quoted in both Communications Daily and Multichannel News.

Prior to entering academia, Gregg had a distinguished career as a communications lawyer in both public service and private practice. Most recently, she served at the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy as Senior Policy Advisor to the United States Ambassador to the 2007 World Radiocommunication Conference. She is a former chief of the FCC Media Bureau and was also vice president of legal and regulatory affairs and general counsel of the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. In private practice she was a partner at the Washington, D.C. law firm of Wiley Rein & Fielding. Gregg is a member of the Federal Communications Bar Association, a former trustee of the FCBA Foundation, and a current co-chair of the FCBA Law Journal Committee.
