His Own Words

"When I came to William & Mary, I knew I wanted to focus on learning about technology issues. I had the opportunity to take classes on copyright litigation, European Internet law, privacy, and much more. My classroom experiences helped me land quality internships in the field. I'm thrilled that William & Mary gave me the opportunity to go from studying in Colonial Williamsburg to working in Silicon Valley."
