J.D. Candidate, Braven Post-Accelerator Fellow | Georgetown University Law Center
Born in Queens, NY and transplanted to South Orange, NJ, Dyllan is the first-generation son of two immigrants from the island of Dominica. Dyllan is currently a first-year J.D. Candidate at Georgetown University Law Center. At Georgetown, Dyllan is a part of the Tech Law & Policy Scholars program, is involved with BLSA (Black Law Student Organization), SIPLA (Student Intellectual Property Law Association), and is a part of the RISE program. Before attending Georgetown, Dyllan received his bachelor’s degree at Rutgers University where he majored in Psychology and minored in Legal Studies and Computer Science as a student in the Honors College.
During his time at Rutgers University, Dyllan focused on opportunities that would help develop his organizational, communication, teamwork, and leadership skills among others. He was a member of several organizations at his school, including BOS (Black Organization of Students), the Pre-Law Society, and Braven Nation. During his time in undergrad, Dyllan participated in the Braven Leadership Accelerator fellowship, completed internships at Braven, Novo Nordisk, The Ideas Maker, The End Records, NJISJ (New Jersey Institute for Social Justice), ADNExUS, and did research in both the Rutgers Psychology department and at Rutgers Law School.
Dyllan is very interested in how social enterprise and emerging technologies can carve a path of upward mobility for underrepresented people while simultaneously fixing problems in society. After graduating from law school, he plans to work with entrepreneurs from underrepresented communities, especially tech-focused ones, to help with the legal issues involved with building, protecting, and scaling their businesses.
This summer Dyllan will be interning at Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP, and Affiliates as a part of their 1L Scholars program.
