Long Form: Elsbeth Magilton received her B.A., cum laude, from Doane College in 2008. She earned her J.D. from the University of Nebraska College of Law and received a concentration in Cyberlaw. Elsbeth also studied at the William and Mary College of Law Center for Legal and Court Technology in 2010. Her focus areas included  commercial space law and policy, cybercrime, electronic privacy, fourth amendment search and seizure issues, telecommunications and broadband policy, and electronic discovery issues.

Since September 2012 Elsbeth has been the Executive Director of the Space, Cyber, and Telecommunications law programs at the University of Nebraska College of Law. There she oversees LL.M. and J.S.D. student recruitment and relations, research projects, and thesis and dissertation proposals. Starting in 2013 Elsbeth was additionally appointed Executive Director, responsible for recruiting and development, of a new LL.M. program in United States Legal Studies for attorneys that practice outside the United States.

 In her free time Elsbeth enjoys being a mother to two young children, reading, running, Netflix binging, crafting, and indulging in being an all around internet junkie. Her hair will probably be different every time you see her.
