Harvard Law School

Lowry Yankwich is a third-year J.D. student at Harvard Law School and a Co-President of the Recording Artists Project. The Recording Artists Project, a student practice organization at HLS, provides pro bono legal assistance to musicians. Student teams in the Recording Artists Project have worked with clients to form band agreements, licensing contracts, and split sheets, among other legal services, and regularly collaborate with students at the Berklee College of Music. In addition to legal work, the group holds events throughout the year, bringing high-profile speakers from the music industry to campus (or, now, virtual panels) to speak with students. Before coming to law school, Lowry worked for two years at the Environmental Defense Fund, with a brief stint in Helsinki working for Gemic Oy, a consulting firm. Lowry graduated from Stanford University in 2016 with a Bachelor's in History. He has played classical music all his life, and is currently working on a podcast about J.S. Bach's Goldberg Variations called "30 from 1.”
