Prof. Kali Murray

Professor Kali Murray is a Professor of Law at Marquette University Law School and a Co-Director of its Intellectual Property Program. Professor Murray's research agenda is focused on the "politics of participation" in a variety of different field including patent, property and administrative law. In patent law, Professor Murray is interested in how the doctrinal formation of patent law is impacted by different administrative, political, and social structures. Her work has therefore focused in on a range of issues including the impact of different administrative actors in patent law, the importance of the patent civil society's ability to participate in patent law, and the emergence of a heterogeneous policy environment in patent law, with a focus on the historical and political role of constitutional courts in shaping patent policy. Among her works, she has published a book, The Politics of Patent Law: Crafting the Participatory Patent Bargain, as a part of the Routledge Research Series in Intellectual Property Law in 2013. Professor Murray's commitment to exploring these subjects has also extended to her submission of a series of amicus briefs addressing the role of constitutional claims under 1st and 13th Amendment to limit patents in genetic information. Her current work, Infrostructure, focuses on how public rights in information are constructed. In property law, Professor Murray is focused on two primary issues. First, Professor Murray is interested in the impact of race, ethnicity and culture in the development of property law. She is co-author (with Alfred Brophy and Alberto Lopez) of a casebook, Integrating Spaces: Cases and Materials on Race and Property Law, and has written extensively in the use of social and cultural history method to explore the impact of race, ethnicity and culture on the development of property law. Second, Professor Murray is interested in the application of progressive property principles to intellectual property theory. Professor Murray is currently serving as a Committee Member on the AALS Faculty Workshop on Pre-Tenured Faculty of Color and has served as a chair for the Property Section of the American Association of Law Schools (AALS) and the Board of Directors for the Association for Law, Society and Property. She is also serving as an adviser on the Building the Bencht. Before coming to Marquette, Professor Murray joined the University of Mississippi School of Law, after engaging in private practice for four years with the law firm of Venable, LLP in Washington, D.C., as a patent litigator with a focus on pharmaceutical patent litigation. Professor Murray also served as a federal judicial clerk for the Honorable Catherine C. Blake of the United States District Court for the Northern District of Maryland in Baltimore, Maryland. Professor Murray holds a B.A., summa cum laude, from Johns Hopkins University, and M.A. in History from Johns Hopkins University, where her research focused on the socio-cultural formation of African-American political identity in the early national period.
