Léo is a PhD candidate at Sciences Po Law School in Paris, working under the supervision of Professor Séverine Dusollier.
Both his academic and professional backgrounds are in law, more specifically in intellectual property law. Léo’s research focuses on copyright law and on its shortcomings in regulating different intertextual and intersubjective creative practices. He then intends on exploring potential remedies to copyright law’s inadequacy in that regard. While an affiliate to the Berkman Klein Center, and a doctoral exchange student at Harvard Law School, he intends on deepening his knowledge of how different technological systems, used in conjunction with copyright law, either promotes or hinders these particular forms of creative endeavors. Léo completed his bachelor’s at Sciences Po and his master’s at Sciences Po Law School. He also holds a master’s degree in legal theory and critical analysis of law from École des hautes études en sciences sociales (EHESS), jointly with the École normale supérieure (ENS) and Paris Nanterre University. Léo has a strong interest in interdisciplinary, critical and comparative approaches and methodologies.
