The Randolph Connect Effect is what happens when people share their passion and expertise through the Randolph Connect platform.
The Connect Effect expands and strengthens a network of resources, building connections between individuals, businesses, and civic organizations. This has a profound effect on the student experience and creates opportunities for students to connect their learning to their interests.
Brandon N. Robinson ‘98 is a partner at the law firm of Balch & Bingham LLP, where he specializes in energy regulatory law, cybersecurity and data privacy, and emerging technologies.

From protecting against (and sometimes responding to) data breaches, to wrestling with data privacy issues, to helping protect the electric grid, to working on projects involving drones, electric vehicles, fiber optic communications, and other technologies, every day and every project is slightly different.
