Chaz Arnett, JD


Associate Professor of Law

School Affiliation

Carey School of Law


  • Criminal Procedure
  • Race and Technology
  • Education


Professor Arnett teaches in the areas of criminal procedure, race and technology, juvenile law, and education law, and his research interests lie at the intersection of race, surveillance, and technology. His scholarship examines the ways in which surveillance measures are used within the criminal justice system, in corrections and policing, and the impact these practices have on historically marginalized groups and vulnerable populations. His research agenda is aimed at highlighting how law and policy pave the way for new technologies, through their design and implementation, to reproduce and entrench legacies of state-sponsored racialized surveillance. Before joining the faculty, Professor Arnett was an assistant professor at the University of Pittsburgh School of Law and a trial attorney with public defender’s offices in Baltimore and New Orleans. As a recipient of the Satter Human Rights Fellowship, he also has worked with the International Center for Transitional Justice on issues of constitutional development in Zimbabwe and on asylum cases for Zimbabwe refugees in South Africa.
