Colin Doyle


Colin Doyle is a Climenko Fellow and lecturer on law at Harvard Law School. His research examines how technological changes to criminal legal processes affect both the application and meaning of state and federal constitutional law. He has a particular focus on decisions at the margins of criminal law, including bail setting and fees and fines determinations. His research often explores how overlooked features of new technological processes can inform and challenge longstanding beliefs and practices within constitutional law, criminal law, and criminal procedure. In a prior role, Doyle worked on bail and pretrial policy reform as a staff attorney at the Criminal Justice Policy Program at Harvard Law School. Doyle is a graduate of Harvard Law School, where he served as articles chair for the Harvard Law Review. His scholarship has appeared in the Journal of Criminal Law and Criminology, the Duke Law Journal Online, and the ACM Conference on Fairness, Accountability, and Transparency. Doyle also writes about criminal law and technology for a broader public audience with his work appearing in The New York TimesThe Appeal, and the New York Law Journal.
