Waymo, a subsidiary of Alphabets, which is Google’s umbrella company, filed charges against Uber this February. Waymo alleges that the San Francisco-based ride-sharing company infringed on their intellectual property rights when a former Google engineer, Anthony Levandowski, purportedly downloaded confidential files at the time of his employment. Just this March, the lawyers of Anthony Levandowski who is now VP of the advanced technology group of Uber, advised him to take the fifth and avoid possible self-incrimination.

Ms. JD’s 2020 Public Interest Scholarship

“The toughest job you’ll ever love.” That is the unofficial slogan of the U.S. Peace Corps. Peace Corps volunteers are expected to serve where they are placed, to accept the unknown about their communities before arriving in-country, and to do this all with flexibility, grace, and  without a single complaint. Luckily for me, my husband and I were serving together. The support we were able to provide to each other during the application process and throughout service was something that single volunteers did not have, so I often tried my best to offer support to other volunteers throughout my service. Adjusting…

Ms. JD Public Interest Scholarship Application

           When I first began law school in 2018, I had not planned on being very involved in campus activities. At the time I was 26 years old, and I believed that most of my classmates would be younger and more connected to the city where I had just moved. I quickly found that my interest in the law was more akin to a passion, and I found myself volunteering to participate in any organization that seemed remotely interesting. Shuffling between classes and meetings for different clubs almost daily, I decided that I wanted to focus…

Ms. JD’s 2020 Public Interest Scholarship

My first day at the University of Nebraska College of Law changed my life forever- I know that’s basic but it’s the truth. I was nervous, anxious, and excited for this new chapter of my life to commence. As I stepped into the auditorium filled with my colleagues, however, I quickly realized that I was the only Mexican American woman in my class. I knew that students of color were underrepresented in law school, but I never expected to feel so out of place in that moment.  I come from a background where attending college, let alone law school, was…

How Technology Intervention Can Help Address Healthcare Fraud Rise

Fraud in all forms and sizes may occur in healthcare, most especially now in the middle of a crisis. Health care fraud schemes are again on the rise. An unscrupulous medical doctor could, for example, use patient information to check for non-rendered services. There is also something called the unbundling of the medical code, whereby a patient is charged for every individual step of the procedure. Enhance Biometrics Security One way to combat medicare fraud and abuse is by applying biometric safety measures in hospitals. When a patient reaches a verification stage, the process is strengthened by biometrics — such as…

Ethics and the Burden of a Criminal Lawyer

Defense lawyers have a difficult job. While these lawyers work in the confines of the law, and they work similar hours to other lawyers, they carry an ethical burden that a lot of other lawyers do not. A criminal lawyer may defend a murderer or rapist. They can be ethical, or they can be unethical attorneys. You can work helping inmates on death row clear their names, and this can be a tremendously rewarding experience. But a criminal lawyer may need to live with the fact that a guilty man is going free. There's also the issue of an innocent…
