Amanda Levendowski researches how lawyers can shape better technologies. She is an Associate Professor of Law and the Founding Director of the iPIP Clinic. Her scholarship has informed multiple Clinic matters where IP, privacy, and technology meet, including counseling on AI systems, secret surveillance technologies, nonconsensual intimate imagery, and face surveillance. She received Georgetown’s Gender+ Justice Fellowship for her face surveillance work. Her latest book, Clean SLATE: How Lawyers Can Shape Better Technologies (U. Cal. Press 2027), provides lawyers with a justice-ready approach to advising clients on sustainability, labor, accessibility, transparency, and ethics (SLATE) issues raised by clients’ technologies. Her first book, Feminist Cyberlaw (U. Cal. Press 2024), co-edited with Meg Leta Jones, helped launch the global feminist cyberlaw movement through essays by scholars, activists, and practitioners exploring how gender, race, sexuality, disability, and class shape cyberspace and the laws that govern it. Beyond academia, she created the first certified open source hardware perfume through her Cyberspace and Technology (CAT) Lab. She was selected as a Scholar-in-Residence with the Center for Transnational Legal Studies, where she drew on her perfumemaking to interview British and French perfumemakers about legal and social barriers in the Western perfume industry. In 2021, Public Knowledge recognized her as a 20/20 Visionary, one of twenty future leaders in technology.
