Trade Secrets Institute: Fellows

Brooklyn Law School’s Trade Secrets Institute (TSI), a pioneering new intellectual property initiative, appointed Judy Kim, Kelly Malloy, and Marissa Potts to serve as TSI Fellows for the 2016-2017 academic year.

Judy Kim ’17
Judy is a graduate of Columbia University and holds a B.S. in Environmental Engineering. Prior to law school, she worked as an energy engineer, which led her to explore intellectual property law at Brooklyn Law School. At BLS, Judy is a Notes and Comments Editor on the Journal of International Law. She is also a fellow with Brooklyn Law School’s Health, Science, and Public Policy Fellowship. She has previously worked at Google, Inc. on the Products and Agreements team as a legal intern and was a summer associate at Fitzpatrick, Cella, Harper & Scinto, where she will return after graduation to practice intellectual property litigation.

Kelly Malloy ’18
Kelly is a 2010 graduate of Bucknell University. She works full-time in the Subsidiary Rights department at Penguin Random House while working toward her J.D. in the Evening Program at Brooklyn Law School. Her professional experience in the editorial department at Princeton University Press, and as an author's agent at a boutique NYC literary agency, sparked her interest in intellectual property. She remains a staunch advocate for books and ideas. Nurturing an interest in the intersections between civil rights and criminal law, she is also currently working on petitions for the Clemency and Pardon Project, a clinic at BLS which represents individuals seeking sentence reductions or full pardons from the Executive.

Marissa Potts ’17
Marissa graduated summa cum laude from Siena College in 2014 with a double major in English and Spanish. At Brooklyn Law School, Marissa is an Executive Notes and Comments Editor for The Brooklyn Law Review, where she will publish a note in Fall 2016. Marissa is also a member of the Moot Court Honor Society, through which she and her team claimed first place in the divisional round of the Saul P. Lefkowitz Trademark Competition. Marissa is the Co-President of Brooklyn Law’s Intellectual Property Law Association and a high school debate coach through Legal Outreach. Marissa has previously worked as a summer associate at Labaton Sucharow, LLP and as an intern for The Honorable George B. Daniels in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York. In the summer of 2016, Marissa worked as a summer associate at Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison, LLP, where she will return as an associate in the corporate department in 2017.
