Harry S. Jackson III is a partner at Fox Rothschild LLP.

"If it were not for Rutgers Law School, I would never have found the opportunities that led me to where I am today. For me, straight out of college and with no lawyers in my family, it was especially helpful to have the Minority Student Program at Rutgers because it gets you started in thinking like a lawyer. I met some of my best friends and made lasting connections through MSP, and that’s why I decided to volunteer in my second year to be a mentor with MSP.

I thought at first that I wanted to be a litigator – and I definitely enjoyed my time on the Rutgers Moot Court Board and competing in mock trials. But my career took an unexpected turn when I was offered a summer clerk position at Fox Rothschild and was later offered a position in the Gaming Practice Group, which is part of the Corporate Department.

I now work with casinos and other gaming industry businesses, including internet gaming enterprises, on regulatory and licensing issues. It’s an exciting time because the U.S. Supreme Court recently opened the door to sports betting when it lifted a longtime ban, so there are new laws and regulations coming online constantly, state-by-state, and I am excited to apply what I learned at Rutgers to this fast-paced and growing industry."
