Renowned intellectual property professor Mark Lemley is leaving University of California, Berkeley’s Boalt Hall School of Law for Stanford Law School in June. Lemley was a visiting professor at Stanford last fall, and soon after his term ended, Kathleen Sullivan, dean of the law school, asked him if he would join the faculty. “I’ve been happy at Boalt,” Lemley said. “I had visiting offers from Harvard and Yale and turned them down. Stanford is the one place I would have considered.” Lemley said Stanford offers a chance to work “with real stars in IP,” such as Lawrence Lessig and Paul Goldstein, author of one of the leading treatises on copyright law. And it is also closer to Mountain View, Calif., where his wife, Rose Hagan, works as trademark counsel for Google Inc. Lemley will become director of Stanford’s Center for Law, Science & Technology, succeeding Margaret Jane Radin. The center is an umbrella organization that encompasses the Center for Internet and Society run by Lessig, the Center for Law and the Biosciences, and the Center for E-Commerce. He will also continue to spend about 15 percent to 20 percent of his time as of counsel at Keker & Van Nest. The 37-year-old Lemley joined Boalt Hall in 1999 and has been one of five directors of its Berkeley Center for Law and Technology. Prior to that he spent six years as a professor at the University of Texas School of Law. Lemley received his undergraduate degree at Stanford and his J.D. from Boalt in 1991. He is the author of six books, including the treatise “IP & Antitrust: An Analysis of Antitrust Principles Applied to Intellectual Property Law,” which he co-authored with University of Iowa College of Law professors Herbert Hovenkamp and Mark Janis. Lemley also served as a consultant to the U.S. Justice Department in its antitrust litigation against Microsoft Corp.
