About the Founder: Joshua J. Schroeder
Our Firm was founded by Joshua J. Schroeder, who spent years authoring numerous legal articles that are well read by lawyers, judges, and scholars around the world. His research ranges from copyright, art law, internet, and nonprofit law issues to immigration, Civil Rights, equity jurisprudence, the Separation of Powers, and federal jurisdiction. His work is often cited by think tanks, book lists, white papers, blogs, and law review articles. He is also the author of a forthcoming book on the American Revolution.
Prior to entering the law, Mr. Schroeder was a songwriter and performer in Southern California where he saw the injustices of the creative industry first hand. At law school he focused his publishing efforts on copyright law, with a special focus on attribution rights (and moral rights generally), international law, and internet law including the late net neutrality rules. His career as an author began in 2012 while externing at Jun He Law Offices in Shanghai, China where Joshua co-authored a piece on employee created inventions for Insight Magazine.
While at Jun He, PRC lawyers taught him about Chinese social compact theory. After this experience, Joshua spent years of research and iterative writing on the U.S. social compact to produce hundreds of pages of published legal research and an authoritative book about the U.S. social compact and the law. Before Donald Trump rose to power in 2016, Mr. Schroeder published his first fully fledged Civil Rights focused legal treatise on habeas corpus entitled The Body Snatchers: How the Writ of Habeas Corpus was Taken From the People of the United States with single billing at Quinnipiac Law Review.
Mr. Schroeder's work on habeas corpus and human rights law led him to his current practice of immigration law. He has since published numerous articles on immigration, internet, and copyright law. His research is the first to show the common origin of both immigrant and artist rights in the legal gambit waged by the founding mother of copyright law Phillis Wheatley. Mr. Schroeder is devoted to the American idea of equal rights for every human being, that we will all be free or none will be, and that this sentiment includes immigrants and artists alike. Thus, Mr. Schroeder's practice maintains one foot in immigration and the other firmly planted in art law.
