Programme: MPhil Technology Policy 2019
Company: Legal Innovation & Ventures, Clifford Chance
I have always sought a union of my two primary interests – a desire to understand, and account for, the development trajectories of emerging economies, as well as an interest to harness the transformative power of technology to influence the former. This programme has enabled me to marry these interests, as well as supplement them with the technical skills needed to effectively integrate technology, management, economics and policy. The connections I've forged here at Cambridge and the real-world applicability of content has allowed me to direct the transformative impact of technology towards the delivery of more thoughtfully designed policies, both in the public and private sector.
Shanice is currently on the Clifford Chance Legal Innovation Team in Singapore, helping spearhead the disruption of the way legal services are delivered, in partnership with the Economic Development Board of Singapore and Future Law Innovation Programme. She is also a researcher at the Emerging Technologies Policy Forum, a non-profit policy think tank aimed at promoting technically informed discourse on emerging technologies policy and law.
Prior to Cambridge, she graduated from King’s College London with First Class Honours, and was awarded the King’s Enterprise Award for helping form strategic Sino-British partnerships in the field of Venture Capital.
