Guarini Global Law & Tech expands and diversifies opportunities for JD and LLM students. The goal is to expose students to global law and technology practice and to provide non-traditional career paths in transnational law. Through clinical work, externships and post-graduate fellowships, JD and LLM students will work with UN agencies and NGOs on projects that entail the use of technology in humanitarian and development work. Projects may include helping organizations create data protection policies and data governance regimes, examining the legal, regulatory and ethical implications of using artificial intelligence, evaluating blockchain-based projects, among others.
