CUA Law Adjunct Professor Appointed by
Federal Communications Commission Chairman As Enforcement Bureau Chief

CUA Law Adjunct Professor, Rosemary Harold, was recently appointed by Federal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit Pai to serve as the agency's Enforcement Bureau Chief.

"This agency has a critical role to play in enforcing the law to protect consumers and support competition in the communications marketplace," said Chairman Pai. "Our Enforcement Bureau has been getting back on track in recent months, and I am confident in Rosemary's ability to continue this progress. Our enforcement efforts must be governed by the facts and the law, and Rosemary's experience and expertise will help us conduct sound investigations and craft legally sustainable enforcement actions. This is especially important when it comes to FCC priorities like protecting consumers against illegal robocalls and confronting unlawful interference with broadcast licensees. I greatly appreciate Rosemary's willingness to serve."

Harold rejoins the agency from Wilkinson Barker Knauer LLP, where she was a partner. Prior to joining the firm in 2011, Harold was a legal advisor to then-FCC Commissioner Robert McDowell for media and broadband issues and deputy chief of the FCC's Media Bureau. She currently serves as a CUA Law Adjunct Professor in the Law and Technology Institute. She began her career as a journalist, working as a reporter and bureau chief for the Miami Herald and an editor at C-SPAN. She earned her law degree magna cum laude from Georgetown University Law Center, her master's degree from the University of Missouri, and her bachelor's degree from the College of William and Mary.
