Renee Newman Knake is Associate Professor of Law and Co-Director of the Kelley Institute of Ethics and the Legal Profession at Michigan State University College of Law. Her expertise and research interests include intersections between the First Amendment and the law of lawyering; innovation in the delivery of legal services; comparative regulation of the legal profession in the United Kingdom and United States; lawyers as entrepreneurs; and the portrayal of lawyers in literature and media. Most recently she has turned her energies to consider ways that law, technology, and social media can democratize the delivery of legal services and enhance the practice of law. In 2012, she co-founded the ReInvent Law Laboratory (http://reinventlaw.com/main.html), a collaborative venture devoted to innovation, technology, and entrepreneurship in legal services sponsored in part by a grant from the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation. Professor Knake’s scholarly articles have been published or are forthcoming in scholarly journals such as Connecticut Law Review, Fordham Law Review, Ohio State Law Journal, and Washington & Lee Law Review. She is also a co-author for the casebook Professional Responsibility: A Contemporary Approach.
