Stories by Matthew Donigian

Matthew Donigian is a third year law student at the University of Illinois College of Law (graduating this May). Before starting this blog I interned as a student public defender for the Committee for Public Counsel Services in Boston, Massachusetts, and as a legal intern for the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws (“NORML”) where I wrote several articles for the NORML blog. My work has been cited in Reason and has been published in the Journal of Law, Technology and Policy’s “Timely Tech”. I am also the developer of the NORML Android application, and am learning more about web development at Codeacademy, Udacity, and Coursera. subscribe to Matthew Donigian's feed
