Professor Jason Reinecke’s scholarship focuses on theoretical and empirical questions in intellectual property and innovation law, with an emphasis on patent law. To inform his research, he draws on his experience as a patent litigator and clerk on the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, as well as his training as a mechanical engineer. His most recent scholarship relates to innovation policy levers, judicial decision-making, and the foundational patentability requirements.
Before joining Marquette, Jason was an intellectual property research fellow at Stanford Law School. Prior to that, he clerked for then-Chief Judge Sharon Prost on the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit. He also practiced law at Covington & Burling LLP, focusing on patent litigation and pro bono representation of veterans seeking benefits.
Jason holds a J.D. from Stanford Law School, where he served as the managing editor for the Stanford Technology Law Review. He received a B.S. in mechanical engineering from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
