I’m Andrew, the Editor of Technology Law, Policy & Regulation at SCL Student Bytes.
Who I am
A tech enthusiast who has belatedly found his way into law. I am currently studying the GDL at BPP University.
Before this I carved out a short, and with hindsight, highly optimistic, career as a freelance writer, alongside a day job as an Agency Specialist with Microsoft Advertising in Germany.
A chance work opportunity to edit the book of an Iranian constitutional law scholar sent me down a new path. With no little amount of assistance from Zuboff's Surveillance Capitalism, I began to consider that we were going to have to either shape, or be shaped by technology's future directions, be that black boxes and deep fakes or health apps and meta-data. Thus, the inner tech lawyer was born.
I came back to London and involved myself in all things SCL, winning the Most Effective Client Communication Award at the 2020 Tech Law Challenge.
I am going on to study the BVS this upcoming year at City, University of London, and hope to one day develop a practice in human rights and technology law.
What I do
My role includes supporting and managing student contributors, working with Conor to set the editorial direction of our tech law and policy coverage, proofing work produced by student contributors and working with the rest of the team to produce audio visual content to bring this area of law to life, and help aspiring tech lawyers get to grips with key issues in the field.
I'm excited for you to meet the rest of the SCL Student Bytes Team over the next few weeks.
