Professor Daryl Lim Named Director of Center for Intellectual Property, Information & Privacy Law
Dr. Daryl Lim, Associate Professor at The John Marshall Law School and expert in intellectual property and anti-trust law, has been named Director of the law school’s prestigious Center for Intellectual Property, Information & Privacy Law. The Center for Intellectual Property Law is a nationally ranked and highly respected IP program. Professor Lim is now in charge of overseeing the Center and the various IP-centered programs it offers. As Dean John E. Corkery said, Professor Lim “is a respected leader in the world of intellectual property law,” and “[h]is accomplishments in practice and as a prolific scholar will contribute greatly to shaping the future of our IP program.”
Professor Lim has built a well-deserved reputation as a brilliant scholar in the antitrust and patent law fields. His book, Patent Misuse and Antitrust Law: Empirical, Doctrinal and Policy Perspectives, is praised by renowned professor Spencer Waller of the Loyola University Chicago School of Law, in an article published in World Competition Law and Economics Review, as “one of the most detailed and insightful analyses of the important, but maddeningly vague, doctrine of patent misuse and its relationship to antitrust law.” His work has been applauded by The Law Library Journal, the official publication of the American Association of Law Libraries, and has been cited to the U.S. Supreme Court and in a number of reports, including those by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) and the Canadian government. Dr. Lim’s articles have been published in four of the top IP law reviews in the country and in journals and books throughout Europe and Asia.
When asked to comment on his appointment, Professor Lim stated, “The Center starts from a position of strength. I am humbled by the confidence placed in me and am excited about the challenges ahead. I look forward to working with my colleagues, our students, as well as with our partners outside of the law school, both old and new, to build on the good work of my predecessors.”
Lim’s appointment as Director of the program marks a salient new phase for the Center for Intellectual Property, Information & Privacy Law, and The John Marshall Law School. U.S. News & World Report ranks the John Marshall Law School as one of the top 20 law schools in IP law. John Marshall is one of 42 law schools in the country participating in the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) Law School Clinic Certification Program. It offers over 50 specialized IP courses, making the law school’s IP program attractive to national and international students alike.
