Gabriel Blinder
PR & Alumni LiaisonHometown: Brooklyn, NY
Gabriel Blinder is an aspiring attorney currently in his second-year attending New York Law School with an interest in specializing in entertainment and intellectual property law. Prior to being at NYLS, Gabriel had graduated cum laude with distinction from Long Island University with a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science and a minor in East-Asian Conflictual History. His passion and pursuit of a legal career stemmed from his background growing up in New York City, where he witnessed the daily challenges of poverty, race, healthcare and other sufferings.
