Professor Ghosh teaches Law 814 and Law 815 as Director of the Technology Law Program and as Crandall Melvin Professor of Law after nearly twenty years of law school teaching. His focus is on the development and commercialization of technology as a means of promoting economic and social development. He has written extensively on pharmaceutical patents, parallel importation, antitrust law, commercialization and other uses of data, and the role of intellectual property policy in shaping these diverse areas. His most recent book published in paperback by Cambridge University Press in 2014 focuses on precision medicine and the role of patenting in promoting new drug therapies tied to personal characteristics and genetic histories. Currently he is working on a book for Cambridge University Press on the first sale doctrine and intellectual property rights from the perspective of international trade theory and practice.

For part of the Spring 2016 semester, Professor Ghosh will be a Fulbright-Nehru Scholar in India where he will be learning about developments in intellectual property law and policy in major centers of intellectual property law practice. He will be spending his time lecturing on developments in law and networking with lawyers, judges, and academics actively involved in legal reform.

He is a member of the California bar and the US Supreme Court bar. He was elected to the American Law Institute in 2012 and is currently a member of the advisory board on the Restatement of Copyright. In his spare time, he enjoys movies, music, and travelling.
