About Ted Sichelman
Ted Sichelman joined USD School of Law in 2009, after completing a Kauffman Foundation Fellowship at the University of California, Berkeley, Boalt Hall School of Law. His teaching and research interests include intellectual property, law & entrepreneurship, empirical legal studies, law & economics, and computational legal studies.
Previously, Professor Sichelman practiced in the areas of intellectual property litigation and transactions, appellate litigation, and venture finance at the law firms of Heller Ehrman and Irell & Manella. He has participated in a number of important U.S. Supreme Court cases, including playing a substantial role in a win for an injured employee in MetLife v. Glenn (2008) and co-drafting an amicus brief in the patent case, Bilski v. Kappos (2010), in which the Court largely adopted the recommendations and reasoning of the brief. Professor Sichelman clerked for Judge A. Wallace Tashima of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit.
Before practicing law, he founded and ran a venture-backed software company, Unified Dispatch. Professor Sichelman designed the company’s software and is a named inventor on several issued and filed patents.
