    professor baumbauer

    Professor Derek Bambauer was a featured contributor in the U.S. State Department’s series of “Who’s Right” debates, a forum for two experts to discuss a current hot topic of issue. In light of the controversy over Google’s refusal to comply with Chinese filtering laws, he debated with University of Chicago Law School Professor Richard E. Epstein about the legitimacy of internet censorship. While Professor Epstein argued that there is one standard of morality, thus immoral laws such as censorship should not be obeyed, Professor Bambauer countered that how a law is created should be taken into account.
