St. John's University

Jeremy Sheff is a Professor of Law at St. John’s University School of Law and the founding Faculty Director of the St. John's Intellectual Property Law Center.  He teaches Property, Introduction to Intellectual Property, Patent Law, Trademark Law, International Intellectual Property, and First Amendment Law. Professor Sheff’s research combines a general interest in legal theory with a focus on how law mediates the creation, dissemination, and use of knowledge in social, cultural, and economic exchange.  He approaches these issues from an interdisciplinary perspective, drawing on literatures in philosophy, the social sciences, and business disciplines. His recent and forthcoming publications include Jefferson’s Taper, 73 SMU L. Rev. (forthcoming 2020); Legal Sets, 40 Cardozo L. Rev. 2029 (2019); and Marks, Morals, and Markets, 65 Stan. L. Rev. 761 (2013); and he is a co-author of the free, open-source Property Law casebook Open-Source Property. His forthcoming monograph, Valuing Progress: A Pluralist Account of Knowledge Governance, is under contract with Cambridge University Press.
