 Dr. Stefania Fusco's research concentrates on intellectual property law and finance. She earned a J.S.D. from Stanford Law School where she was also a Kaufmann Fellow and a Transatlantic Technology Law Forum Fellow. For her doctoral dissertation, she conducted an interdisciplinary empirical investigation on patent protection and financial methods.

She is currently writing about patents issued by the Venetian Republic between the 15th and 18th centuries in relation to the modern debate on the tailoring of patent protection. She is also investigating the activity of non-practicing entities in the U.S. and the EU. Fusco has presented her research at several national IP conferences. She joined the faculty at DePaul College of Law as a visiting assistant professor in Fall 2012. In 2014, she became a senior lecturer at Notre Dame Law School.

A member of the Law School faculty since 1950, Professor Thomas F. Broden’s academic and personal accomplishments have encompassed a broad range of service to humanity. He earned his LL.B. from the Notre Dame Law School in 1949, and his J.D. from the University of Chicago Law School in 1950. He served as assistant dean of the Law School from 1965 to 1967, and is responsible for the Law School’s early involvement in neighborhood-based legal services programs. At various times during his tenure at Notre Dame, he served the government in numerous ways. In 1956, he was integral to the creation of the U.S. Civil Rights Commission. As counsel to the U.S. House of Representatives Judiciary Committee, he was the staff attorney-in-charge of the first Civil Rights bill passed since the post-Civil War Reconstruction Era. In 1965, he worked with the federal government to start the nationwide Legal Services Program to assist low-income persons, and the program he started with Notre Dame and the surrounding South Bend community served as the model for programs later initiated at other law schools. From 1967 through 1969, he directed training and technical assistance for the federal Anti-Poverty Program. And in 1970, he began the University’s Institute for Urban Studies and served as its director for 20 years. Under his leadership, the institute conducted research and educational activities to promote equality of opportunity, to develop strategies to assist the church in urban ministry, and to find ways to improve the lives of those living in poverty. He co-founded the ecumenical United Religious Community of St. Joseph County (Indiana), and has served on the boards of the Indiana Catholic Conference and the Legal Services Program of Northern Indiana. He has served as principal investigator on a number of community projects, including most recently, the Battered Women and Cooperative Legal Services Program. He has been a board member of the South Bend Fair Employment Practices Commission, the Coordinating Committee for Civil Rights of South Bend, the Urban Coalition and the United Way. As professor emeritus of law, Professor Broden has taught courses in subjects such as law and poverty. /assets/73827/original/broden.jpgLAW75727, Law and PovertyBooks Materials on Administrative Law (Temp. ed., University of Notre Dame 1965).
