Alyssa is a 2023 graduate of Santa Clara University School of Law and received the High Tech Law Certificate with Honors for Intellectual Property. She is currently waiting on July California Bar results. She received her Bachelor’s degree at UC Irvine in Political Science in 2019 and is interested in the intersection of law, technology, politics, and social justice. She worked with Colleen Chien on the Paper Prisons Initiative, which advocates for expanding expungement laws across the states and working on automating expungement processes.
Her areas of interest include intellectual property, Internet law, privacy, Trust & Safety, and intermediary liability. During law school, she worked at the in-house legal departments of eBay, Amazon Lab126, Affirm, and currently works at Carta. During law school she also interned for IP Justice and was a 1L Summer Associate at Mayer Brown. She is also a Fellow at the Internet Law and Policy Foundry.
As a queer woman of color, she strives to bring intersectionality to the legal and tech professions by offering her thoughts and perspectives about how tech companies can be more inclusive, and helping with events, training, and overall education. She knows how important it is to always make sure she is representing her communities and making spaces more inclusive. In her free time, Alyssa likes to hang out with her friends and family, go to concerts, play bass, play drums, and spend time with her dogs, Cali and Lily.
