About Me

My name is Chukwuyere Ebere Izuogu and I love all things tech policy.

I qualified as a Solicitor in Nigeria and presently head the Telecoms, Media and Technology (TMT) practice at Streamsowers & Köhn. I am also a Senior Research Fellow at the African Academic Network on Internet Policy. My legal and research interests focus on the legal and public policy issues of the digital economy and technology. From September 2018 until June 2019, I was a Mozilla Fellow where I engaged stakeholders and conducted research on net-neutrality and the prevailing data protection issues in Nigeria.

As a Solicitor, I regularly advise businesses operating in the digital economy such as ISPs, MNOs, social media networks, software manufacturers, e-commerce platforms, OEMs and cloud providers. As a tech policy researcher, I have led or contributed to milestone-setting research for local and international civil society organisations, non-profits, international development organisations and think tanks such as the African Academic Network on Internet Policy, Mozilla Foundation, World Wide Web Foundation, Alliance for Affordable Internet, Tetra Tech International Development, Simply Secure and Open Society Initiative for West Africa in support of their mission objectives concerning the digital economy. I am the author of Regulating Anti-competitive Practices in Nigeria’s Communications Sector, (Wolf Legal Publishers, Netherlands, January 2017).

I was educated at the University of Benin, Nigeria (2003) where I obtained a Bachelor of Laws degree (LL.B), at the Nigeria Law School (2005) where I obtained a Barrister-at-Law professional certificate, and jointly at the University of Hannover, Germany and Strathclyde University, Scotland (2009) where I obtained a Master of Law (LL.M) degree in Information Technology & Intellectual Property Law (Magna Cum Laude). I am a Certified Information Privacy Professional-Europe (CIPP/E) and a British Computer Society (BCS) Certified Practitioner of Data Protection.

To further deepen my knowledge of artificial intelligence policy analysis, I’m presently admitted to the CAIDP Fall AI Policy Clinic Research Group organised by the Center for Artificial Intelligence and Digital Policy in Washington.
