She specializes in international intellectual property law, and has lectured in the areas of intellectual property, international art, e-commerce, culture, technology, information security and innovation at conferences through-out the United States and in over 30 countries on five continents. She has also been actively involved in training intellectual property enforcement officials and has served as a consultant on IPR protection issues and enforcement matters for diverse U.S. and foreign government agencies. Her current research projects focus on international harmonization processes, alternative narratives of protection, and the intersections between intellectual property, information security, culture and technology.

In 2000 Professor Long, while on leave from John Marshall, served as an attorney advisor in the Office of Legislative and International Affairs of the US Patent and Trademark Office where she helped negotiate the IPR Enforcement Sections of the Jordan Free Trade Agreement (among others), participated in various bilateral consultations, and had responsibility for international IP enforcement issues, including TRIPS compliance, and WTO accessions. She has taught in nine countries, including serving as a Fulbright Professor at Jiao Tung University in Shanghai, and as a Visiting Professor at Michigan State University School of Law.

Professor Long is the author of numerous books and articles in the area of intellectual property law, and a monthly columnist on international intellectual property law for the Chicago Daily Law Bulletin. Among her recent articles are Deviant Globalization: The Next Step in the Multilateral Protection of Intellectual Property; Rebooting Trademarks for the 21st Century; Dissonant Harmonization: Limitations on Cash ‘n Carry Creativity; Strategies for Securing the Cyber Safety Net Against Terrorists; Traditional Knowledge and the Fight for the Public Domain; and Crossing the Innovation Divide.

Before joining the faculty of The John Marshall Law School, Professor Long was an attorney with the Washington, D.C. law firms of Arent Fox Kintner Plotkin & Kahn, and Howrey and Simon where she specialized in the areas of intellectual property, unfair competition, entertainment, computer, antitrust and commercial law.
