Andrew C. Michaels

Assistant Professor

Andrew Michaels teaches in the areas of intellectual property and statutory regulation, and his scholarship has focused in the areas of intellectual property law, jurisprudence, and emerging technologies including blockchain and artificial intelligence. Professor Michaels received his J.D. from New York University School of Law, and subsequently clerked for Judge Pauline Newman at the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit before practicing primarily as a patent litigator for a number of years. Professor Michaels’ work has been quoted by multiple federal courts, and has appeared in scholarly journals such as George Mason Law Review, Stanford Journal of Blockchain Law & Policy, and Brooklyn Law Review. He also regularly publishes shorter more practice-oriented pieces in forums such as Law360. Immediately prior to joining the Law Center, Professor Michaels was a Visiting Associate Professor and the Frank H. Marks Intellectual Property Fellow at the George Washington University Law School.
