Andrew Jay Schwartzman, the Benton Senior Counselor, joined the Communications and Technology Law Clinic at the Georgetown’s Institute for Public Representation in January, 2014. From 1978 through 2012, Schwartzman headed Media Access Project (MAP). MAP was a non-profit public interest telecommunications law firm which represented the public in promoting the First Amendment rights to speak and to hear. It sought to promote creation of a well informed electorate by insuring vigorous debate in a free marketplace of ideas. It was the chief legal strategist in efforts to oppose major media mergers and preserve policies promoting media diversity. MAP also led efforts to promote openness and innovation on broadband networks and to insure that broad and affordable public access is provided during the deployment of advanced telecommunications networks. Since 2003, Schwartzman has also taught at the Johns Hopkins University School of Arts and Sciences Department of Advanced Academic Programs. He was the Law and Regulation Contributor to Les Brown's Encyclopedia of Television, and is the author of the telecommunications chapter in the Encyclopedia of the Consumer Movement. Schwartzman is a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania Law School.
