I, Lauren Harriman, am a licensed California attorney and a CIPP/US. I earned my J.D. with a Certificate in Intellectual Property & Technology (the certificate was with honors!) from the University of San Francisco School of Law. I am actively seeking a position in Technology or Privacy Law, so please reach out if you’re looking to fill such a position. I am especially interested in issues surrounding artificial intelligence.
And as always, I’m giving into my inner recovering #Engineer (that whole B.S. in Engineering Physics with a focus in Electronics from Santa Clara University).
Still curious to know more? Read about my recent projects below, or skip to my LinkedIn page.

Some of my Recent Projects/Accomplishments:
1st Place at AngelHackSF
My team won 1st place at AngelHackSF after I wrote and a delivered a rockstar pitch for a machine learning-powered Constituent Relationship Management software package.
2nd Place at IBM’s Cognitive Builder Faire
My team was the runner up at IBM’s Cognitive Builder Faire after I wrote the pitch and delivered the intro for a rapping chatbot. You can read more about what we built in my post Getting to Know Watson (Part 2): Earning 2nd Place at Galvanize’s Cognitive Builder Faire.
Opened an Etsy Store
The project is using a TechShop laser cutter to etch Facebook comments on your engagement announcement into wood (technically medium density fiberboard). I’ve made them for a couple of couples (haha) already, and they’re a big hit. The reason I have to price them so high is because the product is very design-heavy. I have to manually set all the layout before I can etch the comments into wood- I can’t just open up Facebook and hit “print.”
