Emblematic of the barriers to learning computer science that girls have faced for years, a new Google/Gallup report shows that girls are less likely than boys to express interest in pursuing a career in computer science. About one in eight girls (12%) in grades seven through 12 in the U.S. say they are likely to pursue a career in computer science someday. Nearly three times as many boys (33%) say they are likely to pursue a career in this field.

The CIPPIC Summer Program offers outstanding law students an unequalled opportunity to work on cutting edge research and advocacy issues related to law and technology. CIPPIC advocacy typically involves submission of briefs to government and other policy-makers, intervention in precedent-setting cases before judicial and quasi-judicial tribunals, provision of public legal education resources, publication of reports, participation in multi-stakeholder policy-making forums, provision of expert testimony before parliamentary committees, and advising under-represented organizations and individuals on relevant public interest issues.

Working closely with CIPPIC lawyers, summer associates learn how to be effective researchers, policy analysts, and advocates while contributing to public interest policy and law reform in such areas as copyright law, privacy, consumer protection, telecommunications regulation, net neutrality, smart cities, artificial intelligence, digital governance, free speech and civil liberties on the Internet. Summer associates may additionally have opportunities to attend conferences and workshops such as the CIPPIC summer speaker series and
