Leonie is particularly interested in intellectual property law. In 2019, she spent time in Switzerland to study how intellectual property falls within the intersection of law and technology at the University of Zurich. She has also been published by the UNSW Law Journal for her dissertation on patent law and biotechnology, which provides a cross-continental examination of the patentability of isolated gene sequences.
