Brooklyn Law School’s Trade Secrets Institute Appoints Two New Fellows

Trade Secrets Institute: Fellows

Brooklyn Law School’s Trade Secrets Institute (TSI), a pioneering new intellectual property initiative, appointed Eve Chowdhury '20 and Amanda Hartman '20 to serve as TSI Fellows for the 2019-2020 academic year.

Eve Chowdhury is a third-year law student with Brooklyn Law School’s full-time program. Originally from the Bay Area, she got her B.A. in Business Management Economics from the University of California, Santa Cruz in 2015. She then worked in a law firm in San Francisco for two years prior to starting with Brooklyn Law. Eve has an interest in pursuing law in the fashion industry and has worked with luxury brands, athleisure, jewelry, celebrities, magazines, and the like in in-house and firm settings. Presently, she is interning at Cowan DeBaets Abrahams & Sheppard and gaining intellectual property experience in niched industries, i.e. podcasting, fashion, theatre, music, television, etc. She brings a unique perspective to the Trade Secret Institute as trade secrets are more readily expanding to new industries.

Amanda Hartman is a fourth-year student in Brooklyn Law School’s evening division. She holds an A.B. in Comparative Human Development from the University of Chicago. Amanda spent her first three years of law school working full-time in the publishing industry, most recently as Business Affairs Coordinator at William Morris Endeavor.

This past summer, Amanda worked as a Summer Associate at Cahill Gordon & Reindel LLP and is looking forward to returning to the firm next fall as a corporate associate.
