He is currently an Assistant Professor of Law at Rutgers Law School where he teaches property and intellectual property. Victor’s research focuses on how the law impacts innovation, culture and the deployment of new technologies.
“I am very pleased to welcome Jacob Victor to Cardozo,” said Dean Leslie. “His experience and scholarship are a powerful addition to our program in intellectual property, and his expertise in entertainment, music and technology law will be an asset to our students and to our renowned FAME Center.”
Victor previously taught at NYU Law School and Albany Law School, and was an Associate at Kirkland & Ellis LLP in the intellectual property group where he litigated copyright, trademark and trade secret cases and advised clients in entertainment, art, music, technology and advertising.

His most recent articles have appeared in the Minnesota Law Review and the Stanford Law Review. He is currently pursuing research projects related to how copyright, trade secret and antitrust law can best adapt to the policy challenges of the digital age.
Victor graduated from Yale Law School in 2014, where he was an Essays Editor of the Yale Law Journal, a Coker Fellow, a member of the Media Freedom and Information Access Clinic and an OutLaws board member. He received an A.B. in Social Studies magna cum laude from Harvard College in 2009.
