Collect compelling ideas from the brightest thinkers in relevant fields, and brainstorm on pragmatic solutions
What you'll bring:
Strong research and written and oral presentation skills are needed (and we will help mentor).
Relevant prior experience with technology, AI, mobility, automotive issues, safety and/or cybersecurity and privacy is helpful but not required.
Currently enrolled in Law School, with at least one year completed
Experience with emerging technology laws and regulations
Interest in transportation, data, cybersecurity, risk assessment, and intellectual property.
Self-guided and curious
Ability to break down complex legal concepts to colleagues from a variety of backgrounds
