About Sonia Katyal

Professor Katyal joined the Boalt faculty in fall 2015 from Fordham Law School, where she served as the associate dean for research and the Joseph M. McLaughlin Professor of Law.

Her scholarly work focuses on intellectual property, technology, art law and new media, civil rights (including gender, race and sexuality), and property theory. Her past projects have studied the relationship between copyright enforcement, new media, and privacy; the impact of artistic activism on trademark law, commerce and advertising; and the intersection between copyright law and gender with respect to fan-generated works. Katyal also works on issues relating to intellectual property and indigenous people's rights, with a special focus on cultural property and trademark law in the United States and abroad. Her current projects focus on the intersection between technology, internet access and civil/human rights, with a special focus on the right to information.
