Patricia Chang is a third year Fordham Law student and is IPLJ's Technology & Blog Editor. Her interest in law was founded upon Judge Judy and other unrealistic depictions of the legal profession on network television. She fervently believes that her passion for IP, internet, and fashion law justifies the endless hours spent looking at clothes on the internet. When not pondering pressing legal issues, she can often be found designing dresses, building websites, practicing her sick golf swing, and being tormented by her corgi, Beanie.
