Keith Porcaro
Senior Lecturing Fellow

Keith Porcaro is the Rueben Everett Senior Lecturing Fellow, Co-Director of the Access Tech Tools Initiative, and Director of the Digital Governance Design Studio at Duke Law.

Keith's work focuses on the future of legal institutions and the legal profession in a digitizing world. The Data Governance Design Studio supports organizations who are navigating uncertain data and technology challenges, and helps students prepare to counsel non-technical clients on digital issues.

Prior to joining Duke, Keith maintained a data governance consulting practice, and worked with legal aid organizations to design and evaluate technology projects. Keith was previously a fellow at Harvard's Berkman Klein Center and an adjunct professor at Georgetown Law, where he co-taught a practicum class on criminal justice, technology, policy, and law.

In addition to his work at Duke, Keith builds interactive simulations that explore how technology and design change legal decision-making in unexpected ways. Keith has a JD from Duke Law, and a BSFS from Georgetown's School of Foreign Service. He is licensed to practice law in California.
