Legal experts in Trust and Safety are increasingly in demand at Internet and technology companies. Trust and Safety offers the perfect blend of Internet law and policy, made up of teams that design, implement, and enforce the policies and practices that keep users safe and productive online. While JD advantage roles tend to fly under the radar, the reality is that they play an integral role in the development and maintenance of a company’s identity within both its consumer base and the broader public at large.
