We're thrilled to announce that leading scholars Anupam Chander and Madhavi Sunder will be joining Georgetown Law this fall. With deep expertise in intellectual property, cyberlaw, international trade, human rights and development, Professors Chander and Sunder will be phenomenal additions to Georgetown Law's tech- and IP-focused faculty.
Professor Chander, who visited at Georgetown in the Fall 2017 semester, is the author of The Electronic Silk Road (Yale University Press), a study of the legal infrastructure for international trade over the internet. The recipient of Google Research Awards and an Andrew Mellon grant on the topic of surveillance, he is a member of the ICTSD/World Economic Forum E15 expert group on the digital economy and the World Economic Forum expert group on Internet fragmentation. In the 2018-2019 academic year, he will teach Contracts (fall) and Cyberlaw (spring).
Professor Sunder, who visited at Georgetown in the Spring 2018 semester, is a leading scholar at the intersection of intellectual property, human rights law and the First Amendment. Her book, From Goods to a Good Life: Intellectual Property and Global Justice, examines the impact of intellectual property law on social and cultural life. Professor Sunder was named a Carnegie Scholar in 2006, and has been a Visiting Professor of Law at the Yale Law School, the University of Chicago Law School, and Cornell Law School. In the 2018-2019 academic year, she will teach Trademark and Unfair Competition Law (fall and spring) and Property (spring).
