3L Michael Ortizo Named as Law Student Ambassador to the American Bar Association Antitrust Law Section’s Intellectual Property Committee

3L Michael Ortizo is one of two Law Student Ambassadors to the American Bar Association Antitrust Law Section’s Intellectual Property Committee. Ortizo worked with Professor Shubha Ghosh to secure the ambassador position.

The Law Student Ambassador Program is a working group composed of highly recommended law students or economics students who are interested in careers in antitrust or privacy that meets virtually to discuss Section events and opportunities for law students. Additional details about the ambassador’s responsibilities can be found here.

“I believe that the ABA Law Ambassador program for the Antitrust Section, and in particular the IP Committee, will allow me to accelerate my understanding of these interests and will allow me to provide meaningful scholarship within the section. Additionally, because of the many practitioners and scholars that I will be collaborating with through the program, I believe it will assist me with my career aspirations,” says Ortizo.

At the College of Law, Ortizo is a Student Attorney in the Transactional Law Clinic; Senior Research Associate at the New York State Science and Technology Law Center; Form and Accuracy Editor at the Journal of Science and Technology, Vice President of the Intellectual Property Law Society; Secretary of the Asian Pacific American Law Student Association, and Director of Media for the Asian Pacific Islander American Public Affairs Syracuse Chapter.

“I am hoping to work in the intersection of IP, consumer protection law, antitrust law, and most precisely, data privacy. Particularly, I am interested in advisory and consulting roles related to these interests,” says Ortizo. “Because of my experience in the Innovation Law Center and the Transactional Law Clinic, I realized that I have a passion for wanting to assist clients in matters related to IP and other regulatory and compliance challenges related to their business dealings.”
