The 23rd is a busy day, it turns out, and there’s something for everyone! I’ll keep this brief, but I hope you all are free for at least one of these great options:
Event: Emerging Practice Areas: Cannabis, Cryptocurrency, Cybersecurity & Estate Planning
Between changes in cannabis legalization, new regulations and enforcement around financial technologies and cybersecurity, and demographic shifts as the U.S. population ages, many legal practice areas are undergoing seismic shifts that may create opportunities for new lawyers.
In this engaging panel, practitioners in these emerging and growing practice areas will discuss their career paths and their practice, predictions for the future, the advantages and disadvantages of specializing, and advice for students and young attorneys seeking to enter or transition into these fields.
Moderated by NYLS’ very own Sare Mills, registration is free to law students! Sign up here.
The event will run from 12:30pm to 2:00pm on Thursday, March 23, over Zoom. Many thanks to Abbey Forde for passing this along!

Event: A Conversation with Amol Sinha
Last but not least, the American Constitution Society is hosting NJ ACLU Director Amol Sinha to talk about criminal justice issues, police brutality and violence, hate crimes against Asian Americans, the intersectionality of technology and civil rights, and abortion rights, as well as the recent start of an abortion criminal defense initiative. Although this isn’t as privacy-centered as some of our other events, the union of civil rights and data protection is not to be ignored. Time will be left for questions, and there will be pizza!
