Alexander Goldman ’14 has been awarded a $5,000 stipend from the Federal Communications Bar Association (FCBA) Foundation. He is one of 14 awardees nationwide to receive this competitive stipend, created for law students who have accepted unpaid summer internships in communications-related federal or state government agencies. Goldman is interning this summer at the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in the Telecommunications Access Policy Division.
Goldman joins the FCC with vast experience in the telecommunications industry. Before attending law school, he founded AG Internet Knowledge, a consulting business. Among his clients was CTI, for which he helped win $20 million in funding to provide Internet access to rural and poor areas of the country. He also worked as a technical writer at ABE Corporation, a family-owned company in Tokyo, and as an editor at Simon & Schuster and internet.com. In addition, he oversaw the ISPCON trade show, which was the largest industry gathering for Internet service providers.
At BLS, Goldman focuses his studies on Internet law, administrative law, and business law. He has interned with the Economic Justice Division of the New York State Attorney General’s Office, working to combat Internet-related fraud, and he was with the New York City Department of Design and Construction, working on utility law. His article “Regulating the Practice of Charging Loan Interest as a Case Expense” was also published in a recent issue of Practicum, the Law School’s online scholarly journal. Goldman will be a member of the Brooklyn Law Incubator and Policy Clinic (BLIP) in the fall semester and a Brooklyn Law School Trade Secrets Fellow in the coming year.
