Professor Daryl Lim, director of the John Marshall Law School’s Center for Intellectual Property, Information & Privacy Law has been appointed a peer reviewer to the Journal of Empirical Legal Studies.
The interdisciplinary journal covers law, economics, psychology and many of the social sciences. Based at Cornell Law School, it is widely regarded as the top law and social science journal, as well as the top law and economics journal. The journal publishes the work of legal scholars from institutions such as Harvard Law School, Columbia Law School and Northwestern University Pritzker School of Law.
In intellectual property law, the journal has featured studies on the heterogeneity of patent plaintiffs, the role of trademarks in online searches and the behavioral foundations of trade secrets. In antitrust law, the journal has published work on tacit collusion, the use of merger law for protectionism and the appeals process in cartel cases.
“The appointment reflects the impact that John Marshall has in the academic arena. I look forward to contributing to the journal’s efforts to help us better understand how empirical issues, particularly in the IP and antitrust spheres, can impact our lives.”
John Marshall’s Intellectual Property Law program was ranked #15 in the nation by U.S. News & World Report’s 2019 Best Graduate Schools.

The Center for Intellectual Property, Information & Privacy Law offers an LL.M. in Intellectual Property Law, for practicing attorneys, and an M.J. in Intellectual Property Law, for non-attorneys, both of which can be earned entirely online.
