Daniel Berrick, JD, is the Elise Berkower Fellow for 2021–2022. His work involves analyzing complex consumer and commercial privacy law issues, from technology-specific areas such as advertising practices, drones, wearables, connected cars, and student privacy, to general data management and privacy issues related to ethics, de-identification, algorithms, and the Internet of Things. In this role, Daniel also collaborates with industry, peers and the wider privacy community to identify and develop best practices for data privacy.
A recent graduate of Duke University School of Law, Daniel is excited and committed to pursuing a career in privacy and cybersecurity law. At Duke, he became interested in technology law issues after taking a course with General Charlie Dunlap, where he analyzed whether cyber- attacks against undersea cables represented a violation of international law. Daniel cultivated a richer understanding of privacy and cybersecurity law in his classes on US privacy law, data breach response and cybersecurity law, artificial intelligence and robotics law, and cyber law and policy. In the Spring of his third year, Daniel participated in the First Amendment Clinic and learned how to assist clients navigating restrictions placed on their speech online.
During the summer of 2020, Daniel collaborated with Professor Jeff Ward to author several chapters in Professor Ward’s upcoming book, which analyze artificial intelligence’s promises and perils for privacy and cybersecurity. A student member of the International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP) and avid participant of the Duke Law and Technology Society, Daniel obtained his CIPP/US certification in recognition of his knowledge of U.S. privacy law.
