Latham & Watkins, in collaboration with the New York University (NYU) Center for Cybersecurity, is pleased to announce that Cole Rabinowitz, a second-year student at NYU School of Law and Vice President of NYU’s National Security Law Society, has received the Latham & Watkins Award in Technology and Law. The scholarship program seeks to cultivate a new generation of technology-savvy lawyers who are not only equipped to analyze the most complex technology law and policy issues, but also master the technical understandings of the fast-developing field.

In naming the 2018 scholar, Randy Milch, Co-Chair of the NYU Center for Cybersecurity, said: “Cole is a standout student with tremendous enthusiasm for both the technology and the law of cybersecurity, particularly in the context of national security and investigations.”

Michèle Penzer, Office Managing Partner of Latham & Watkins in New York, said: “We congratulate Cole on winning this scholarship and wish him continued success in the dynamic and growing area of cyberlaw. Our collaboration with the Center for Cybersecurity at NYU underscores Latham’s commitment to fostering the next generation of tech-savvy lawyers.”

“More and more we see the importance of developing the interdisciplinary skills needed to practice at the intersection of technology, policy, and the law,” said Vivian Maese, a partner in the New York office of Latham & Watkins and Global Co-Chair of the firm's FinTech Industry Group. “The scholarship program is designed to deepen law students’ understanding of technological aspects of information governance, as well as privacy, data protection and security, and other concerns for businesses and societies in cyberspace."

Rabinowitz said: “I am honored to receive this scholarship and am eager to pursue my passion for technology, cyber law, and policy at NYU Law. I look forward to working with my peers, faculty, and industry experts who share my interests to advance the debate in this critical space.”
