Jacob Victor—an intellectual property and technology law expert with publications in two of the United States’ top three flagship law reviews—joined Albany Law’s faculty as an assistant professor in July.
As a tenure-track faculty member, Victor is teaching intellectual property–related courses and first-year property; developing a program for students interested in innovation- and technology-focused careers; serving as faculty advisor to the Innovation Intensive apprenticeship clinic, an experiential opportunity offered in partnership with the Research Foundation for SUNY and SUNY Polytechnic Institute; and continuing his research on how intellectual property law is adapting to the digital age.
Victor’s scholarship has been published in the Yale Law Journal, the Cornell International Law Journal, and, most recently, the Stanford Law Review.
He was previously an acting assistant professor of lawyering at New York University School of Law and a fellow at its Engelberg Center on Innovation Law and Policy. Prior to joining NYU, Victor was an associate at Kirkland & Ellis LLP and a law clerk for Judge Pierre N. Leval on the Second Circuit Court of Appeals. He is a graduate of Yale Law School and Harvard College.
