The Center for Democracy & Technology is seeking applicants for the 2014 Ron Plesser Fellowship, a two-year public interest fellowship for recent law school graduates looking to practice in the areas of privacy law, civil liberties, and Internet policy in CDT’s Washington, DC office. The fellowship was established by CDT and the law firm of DLA Piper Rudnick Gray Cary in honor of Ron Plesser, a senior partner at the firm who died suddenly in the fall of 2004.
The Plesser Fellow will focus on consumer privacy issues, but will also have the opportunity to work on the full range of CDT’s legal and public policy activities. Previous Plesser Fellows have worked on a wide variety of topics related to Internet policy and civil liberties, including government ID programs, government access to user data, mobile applications, online identity, free expression, international policy issues, and baseline consumer privacy legislation.
