Andrea Slane

Dr. Andrea Slane is an Associate Professor in the Legal Studies Program at the University of Ontario Institute of Technology in Oshawa, Ontario. Her research focuses on law’s engagement with digital technology, including how technologies affect our sense of, and ability to protect, privacy and other rights and associated harms. She has published on a range of Internet-related legal issues, including how Canadian privacy law deals with photographs of a person’s body (whether sexual or not), and what legal principles are or are not engaged where the law allows private businesses to voluntarily share customer and employee information with law enforcement. Dr. Slane holds a PhD in Comparative Literature and a JD in Law, and combines these fields by considering both the doctrinal content of law and how we imagine law to operate. Dr. Slane is also admitted to the bar in Ontario.
