Co Director
Legal Information Institute at Cornell Law School

Craig spent six years at the law firm Cooley LLP litigating a broad range of commercial disputes for companies such as Adobe, Facebook, Nintendo, and Qualcomm before returning to Ithaca. Having left a career as first a naval flight officer and then an intelligence analyst to attend Cornell law school in the mid-aughts, Craig now calls upon all facets of his prior experience as he mentors teams of law students, manages LII's network of volunteers and legal professionals, monitors the website to discern usage trends and patterns, studies trends in open access and free law, oversees LII's communications and fundraising efforts, and pursues new partnership initiatives–all with an eye toward expanding the availability of free and open legal information resources on the internet.  Craig is a proud recipient of the FastCase Fifty Award for his work in Free Law.
