Reema Moussa is a JD Candidate at the University of Southern California, Gould School of Law. Her experience bridges technical, legal, business, and policy capacities, and she has worked across borders to evangelize equitable solutions to privacy and cybersecurity issues.
At Gould, she is a Student Attorney for the Intellectual Property and Technology Law Clinic, a Staff Editor for the Southern California Interdisciplinary Law Journal, and the President of the Gould Privacy and Cybersecurity Law Society (PCLS). In addition, she is a Research Assistant to Professor D. Daniel Sokol, and is independently conducting research on the intersections of (and tensions between) privacy and cybersecurity, algorithmic bias, and digital civil rights. Throughout her time in law school, she has sought out opportunities at the nexus of a broad variety of perspectives on privacy issues, interning at SentinelOne and the Future of Privacy Forum.
Reema is passionate about encouraging interdisciplinary, early-in-career engagement in emerging tech issues, and collaborates with young leaders in the tech policy community through her role as a Fellow and the West Coast Regional Chair of the Internet Law and Policy Foundry, where she hosts and produces the Tech Policy Grind podcast. She is also the Founder and President of the Women in Cybersecurity (WiCyS) Privacy, Law, and Policy Affiliate. Since 2021, she has served on the Young Lawyers Advisory Panel of the American Bar Association Antitrust Section Privacy and Information Security (PRIS) Committee. She is one of two ICANN Fellows representing the United States at the ICANN76 Community Forum.
A semester and summer spent in Geneva, Switzerland studying abroad and interning at the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) sparked Reema’s interest in technology, cybersecurity, and privacy law at the international level. Upon her return to her home university, the University of California, Santa Barbara to complete her undergraduate degrees in Communication and Global & International Studies, she served as the Cybersecurity Awareness Coordinator for the Office of the Chief Information Officer on campus. While completing her Master's in Technology Management at UCSB, she returned to ITU to serve as the Girls in Information Communication Technology (ICT) Coordinator for the 10th Anniversary of International Girls in ICT Celebration, under the leadership of current ITU Secretary General Doreen Bogdan-Martin.
This summer, Reema looks forward to joining Goodwin Procter’s New York City office as a Summer Associate.
