Amanda Levendowski is an Associate Professor of Law and the founding Director of the Intellectual Property and Information Policy (iPIP) Clinic. Her clinical projects and research focus developing practical approaches to cutting-edge legal problems. The iPIP Clinic focuses on counseling work—including strategic advising, policymaking, and impact advocacy— for individuals, non-profits, and other organizations that engage with intellectual property and information policy issues from a public interest perspective. Details about the iPIP Clinic’s work can be found here.
Her scholarship develops creative approaches to technology problems using intellectual property and cyberlaw. Her recent pieces use intellectual property to tackle tricky social issues that crosscut privacy, such as combating nonconsensual pornography, curbing biased artificial intelligence, uncovering secret surveillance technology, and curtailing invasive face surveillance. Her cyberlaw work, including her co-edited volume Feminist Cyberlaw, offers new ways to think about cyberspace and the laws that govern it.
Levendowski is Faculty Advisor to the Institute for Technology Law and Policy and a former Gender+ Justice Fellow. Prior to joining Georgetown, she co-taught the Technology Law and Policy Clinic at NYU Law, where she was also a research fellow at the Information Law Institute and a fellow at the Engelberg Center for Innovation Law and Policy. She previously practiced with Kirkland & Ellis and Cooley. She received her JD from NYU Law, where she received the Walter J. Derenberg Prize for copyright law, and her BA from NYU, where she developed a concentration in Publishing, Copyright & Technology.
