Ira Steven Nathenson

St. Thomas University School of Law
Professor of Law
Weston, Florida
I'm a law professor who writes about internet law and intellectual property. As an internet prof, I'm also (unsurprisingly!) active in social media, with a professional site at nathenson.org, regular twitter updates at @nathenson, and a youtube channel (irastevennathenson). I also play the electric guitar and walk the dog.

Below is a more official-sounding bio:

Professor Ira Steven Nathenson teaches Intellectual Property, Copyright, Cyberlaw, and Civil Procedure at St. Thomas University School of Law in Miami, FL. He graduated summa cum laude from the University of Pittsburgh School of Law, where he served as Editor-in-Chief of the University of Pittsburgh Law Review.

Professor Nathenson's scholarship appears in prestigious journals such as the Harvard Journal of Law & Technology, the University of Pittsburgh Law Review, the University of Louisville Law Review, and elsewhere. He has twice won the nationally recognized Ladas Memorial Award for his writings on trademarks and the internet. His current scholarship focuses on cyberlaw, online rights enforcement, human rights, procedural justice, and legal education. He is a committed advocate for "digital due process," namely, the idea that just as nation-states owe citizens due process rights, such rights must also be provided to the public by powerful internet intermediaries.

Before teaching law, Professor Nathenson served as a law clerk to the Honorable D. Michael Fisher and the Honorable Joseph F. Weis, Jr. of the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit. Professor Nathenson also practiced at Kirkpatrick & Lockhart LLP (now K&L Gates LLP), where he focused on copyright, trademark, and internet law.
