Herman Singh Arneja

Operations Vice President

My name is Herman. I am studying Law at the University of Leicester and I am the Operations Vice President and Wellbeing and Inclusion Ambassador for the Information Technology Law Society. I am proud of what our society offers to students and how different it is. There are few student groups dedicated to such a new area. I am interested in legal technology and also how different legal systems accommodate changes in technology and what this means for economies, consumers, companies and of course, lawyers.
