LOS ANGELES �� The University of California at Irvine’s Donald Bren School of Law has hired Dan L. Burk, an intellectual property scholar at the University of Minnesota Law School, to be a founding faculty member. Burk, who joined the University of Minnesota School of Law in 2000, specializes in cyber law and biotechnology. He holds the Oppenheimer, Wolff & Donnelly Professorship in Law and teaches courses in copyright, patent and electronic commerce issues. Burk also has been involved in developing the school’s joint degree program in law, health and the life sciences. He is a member of the Order of the Coif and has served as a legal advisor to the American Civil Liberties Union Committee on Patent Policy. He has previously taught at Seton Hall University School of Law and Stanford Law School. Burk did not return calls. Erwin Chemerinsky, the dean of UC Irvine’s law school, confirmed Burk has been hired but declined to comment. Other founding faculty members at UC Irvine include two existing professors, Joseph DiMento and Elizabeth Loftus, and Catherine Fisk, a law professor at Duke Law School and Chemerinsky’s wife. Chemerinsky, a professor at Duke Law School who officially takes the UC Irvine dean position on July 1, has said he expects to hire 35 faculty members for the school, which opens in 2009. In January, UC Irvine hired an assistant dean and a director of development.
