Mark P. McKenna teaches and writes in the areas of intellectual property and privacy law. Professor McKenna is widely recognized as a leading intellectual property scholar, having published in many of the most prestigious journals in his field. Though his core area of expertise is trademark law, he has written broadly on nearly every area of intellectual property, including utility patent, design patent, copyright, and the right of publicity. His most recent work has focused on the intersection of intellectual property rights regimes and the intersection of IP rights with adjacent rights. Professor McKenna joined the Notre Dame Law School faculty on a permanent basis in the Fall of 2008 after visiting for a semester in the Spring of 2008. He has also been a visiting professor at Stanford Law School, the University of Toronto Faculty of Law, the Munich Intellectual Property Law Center, and the Turin University-WIPO Master of Laws in Intellectual Property Program. Prior to joining the Notre Dame faculty, Professor McKenna was a member of the faculty at Saint Louis University School of Law and practiced law with an intellectual property firm in Chicago, where he primarily litigated trademark and copyright cases. He graduated from the University of Notre Dame in 1997 with a degree in Economics and earned his J.D. from the University of Virginia School of Law in 2000. In addition to various intellectual property courses, Professor McKenna teaches Information Privacy Law and the first-year Torts class, and has previously taught Civil Procedure. /assets/181942/300x/mckenna_mark_2_1_.jpgLAW60901, Torts LAW70134, Intellectual Property Survey LAW70128, Copyright Law LAW70136, Design Law LAW70137, Trademarks & Unfair Competition LAW73132, Information Privacy LawBooks THE LAW OF DESIGN: DESIGN PATENT, TRADEMARK, & COPYRIGHT (West 2017) (with Edward Lee and David L.
