About Jason Mazzone

Jason Mazzone joined the University of Illinois College of Law in the fall of 2012 as the Lynn H. Murray Faculty Scholar in Law. Before going to Illinois, Professor Mazzone was the Gerald Baylin Professor of Law at Brooklyn Law School.

A nationally recognized expert in the fields of constitutional law and history and intellectual property law, Professor Mazzone focuses on issues of federalism, separation of powers, state court interpretation of the federal Constitution, and intellectual property policy. His acclaimed book, Copyfraud and Other Abuses of Intellectual Property Law, was published in 2011 by Stanford University Press.

Before teaching law, he clerked for The Honorable Robert D. Sack of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit and for The Honorable John G. Koeltl of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York, and he practiced intellectual property law in New York City.

Professor Mazzone is a member of the American Law Institute and he has served on the Board of Trustees of the Copyright Society of the USA. His scholarship has been cited by many courts, including the Supreme Court of the United States.
