Professor of Law
Notre Dame Presidential Fellow
Professor McKenna on Notre Dame
“Notre Dame is a great place to study intellectual property and technology law because it is a place where we are entirely comfortable thinking about what kinds of innovation really promote human flourishing. My colleagues and I don't always agree about the best policies, but we share a sense that those policies are to be judged by their human impact, and that engagement across disciplines is critical to understanding the dimensions of problems and making progress on their solutions.
“Notre Dame is also a great place to teach because the daily interactions between faculty and students reflect a deep sense of community and a commitment to using law to improve people's lives. People come here because they feel that community, and their experience is richer because of it.”
