Bloomberg Law recognized Cleveland State University College of Law and its Center for Cybersecurity & Privacy Protection as part of its inaugural Law School Innovation Program. The new Bloomberg Law program recognizes law schools that are “pioneering student development in ways that improve the law school experience and foster career readiness.”
The Law School Innovation Program highlights innovative programs that are advancing legal education in six categories: business, experience, justice, pedagogy, student development, and technology. Eight law schools including CSU|LAW were included in the inaugural release.
“Students are the heart of our law school,” Professor Brian Ray, the director of the Center for Cybersecurity and Privacy Protection told Bloomberg. “Our faculty and staff are constantly working to develop new programs and identify outside opportunities for our students to develop skills and engage in experiences to prepare them for existing and new careers in law and law-related fields.”
“The Cybersecurity and Data Privacy Certificate program and the interdisciplinary Master of Legal Studies in Cybersecurity and Data Privacy program offered by Cleveland State University College of Law provide students the chance to acquire mastery of the technical aspects of cybersecurity and to work together with students from other disciplines on real-life situations where the legal and technical issues intersect,” according to Bloomberg.
“And the results prove that the programs are succeeding. Multiple graduates work in both traditional and non-traditional roles in the privacy and data security industries. They’re employed by law firms; national, state, and local government; Fortune 100 companies; and tech startups,” the article continued.
“We take great pride in ensuring that our law school continues to lead at the forefront of legal education,” said CSU|LAW Dean Lee Fisher. “The work of our Center for Cybersecurity & Privacy Protection is a shining example of the cutting-edge education that is preparing our students for a rapidly evolving workplace.”
