Jacqueline Goralczyk ’15 was intent on elevating her J.D. As a former business owner and now an attorney with Ianniello Anderson, P.C., focused on real estate and financial services, she completed Albany Law’s online LL.M. in Cybersecurity and Data Privacy Law in one year.

The online LL.M. degree allowed her to build and chair the firm’s new practice in cybersecurity and data privacy.

“The professors were excellent, and your classmates are mostly professionals and bring a lot of different perspectives to the classes from all over the world,” said Goralczyk. “You get a rich and diverse experience from the program. It may be online, but it’s thoroughly engaging.”

Now, she explained, “I can protect the assets of our firm and of our business clients.”

Goralczyk—who took eight courses in one year—is no stranger to challenging schedules, completing her J.D. degree three years ago while working full time and raising her toddler— now seven—with her husband.

“You work when you can,” she said. “The courses are organized well and allow you to control your own schedule. It provided great value for me and my firm.”

With the LL.M. degree in hand, Goralczyk is now pursuing a Certified Information Privacy Professional (CIPP) credential through the International Association of Privacy Professionals.

At Ianniello Anderson, Goralczyk helps clients manage their responses to cyber-related incidents—including possible remediation, reporting, and litigation—and advises on the development of cybersecurity and data privacy practices. She also continues to practice in the areas of commercial and residential real estate.
