Meet Jason, an Institute for Privacy Protection Student Fellow 2017-2018

Seton Hall Law’s Institute for Privacy Protection is pleased to highlight the Student Fellows for 2017-2018. The Student Fellows teach unique curriculum in elementary and middle school.  The curriculum includes the following topics: Introduction to Privacy, Digital Footprint and Reputation, Ads and Content, and Balancing Time Online vs. Offline. It is anticipated that our current cohort will teach over 200 elementary and middle school children by the summer of 2018 in New Jersey and New York. Additionally, the Student Fellows are integrally involved in the Institute for Privacy Protection conferences and continuing legal education events. 

Meet Jason Sumbaly - Jason is a third year dual-degree student. He is pursuing his JD and MA in Conflict Resolution and Global Negotiations from the School of Diplomacy and International Relations. Jason’s interest in privacy protection began as a senior in high school. He learned of a bill being sponsored in the NJ State Assembly requiring public schools to incorporate responsible social media use as part of their curricula. The bill did not pass. Since then Jason has chosen to maintain a very limited Facebook page, not accepting friend requests from anyone, and staying completely off of other social media applications such as Instagram, Snapchat and Twitter. In addition, Jason is working on consolidating Terms of Use agreements for major social media and data collecting websites in order to make it easier to read and understand for average consumers.
