Meet Kyle, an Institute for Privacy Protection Student Fellow 2018-2019

The Institute for Privacy Protection is pleased to highlight our Student Fellows 2018-2019.  Our Student Fellows will teach our 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. We anticipate that our current cohort will teach over 300 elementary and middle school children by the summer of 2019 in New Jersey and New York. Additionally, our Student Fellows will be integrally involved in our conferences and continuing legal education events.

Kyle Kennett is a second-year law student at Seton Hall Law for the 2018-2019 academic year. Prior to attending law school, Kyle was a History and Secondary Education major at Rider University. He also substitute taught grades Kindergarten through Eight at the local grammar school in his home town of Spring Lake, NJ. In the summer of 2018, Kyle interned with Santarcangelo Law, L.L.C. in Montclair, NJ. While at Santarcangelo, Kyle worked on various legal matters in the fields of personal injury, healthcare, and property. Kyle became interested in Privacy Law last year when issues with popular social media outlets such as Facebook and Twitter became headline news following data breaches. After seeing top athletes drafted by the NFL and NBA face criticism for past controversial tweets and posts, Kyle realized the importance of educating youth on the dangers of social media use.
