Ginsburg Elected to Nation’s Oldest Learned Society

Fall 2013

Columbia Law School Professor Jane C. Ginsburg was recently elected as a member of the American Philosophical Society. The organization, which is the oldest learned society in the United States, was founded by Benjamin Franklin in 1743 to promote scholarship in a wide range of scientific and humanities-driven subjects. Ginsburg, the Morton L. Janklow Professor of Literary and Artistic Property Law, is an expert on intellectual property law, comparative law, private international law, and legal methods. She serves as faculty director of the Law School’s Kernochan Center for Law, Media and the Arts.
