Daryl Lim teaches intellectual property (IP) law as well as antitrust law. His current courses are Patent and Trade Secret Law, Antitrust Law, IP and Antitrust Law and the IP overview course.
Professor Lim's book, Patent Misuse and Antitrust: Empirical, Doctrinal and Policy Perspectives was published by Edward Elgar Publishing in 2013. The book has been highly praised among patent and antitrust experts. It has also been cited to the Supreme Court by lawyers for both sides in their briefs in Kimble v. Marvel Enterprises, Inc., a case concerning post-expiration patent royalty payments.
Professor Lim's articles have appeared in four of the top eight IP law reviews in the U.S., as well as in peer-reviewed journals and books in Europe and Asia. In 2009, he won the Grand Prize in an international essay writing competition organized by the International Association for the Advancement of Teaching and Research in Intellectual Property ("ATRIP"). His latest article on the smartphone wars will be published by the Penn State Law Review. He is currently working on the patent and antitrust sections of Intellectual Property: Law, Policy and New Perspectives, a casebook by West Publishing.
Professor Lim was cited in a 2013 World Intellectual Property Organization Report on patents and the public domain. He has contributed to practitioner-focused publications for the American Bar Association. In 2013 he was appointed a peer reviewer for the Max Planck Institute's International Review of IP and Competition Law (IIC), one of about thirty reviewers worldwide in recognition of his "knowledge and skill in the field." He is also a peer reviewer for The Yale Law Journal. In 2014, Professor Lim received the John Marshall Law School's Scholarly Achievement Award for "significant contributions to legal scholarship."
Professor Lim was an invited co-consultant on an amicus brief filed by the American Antitrust Institute in a recent Supreme Court case involving genetically modified seeds. He regularly presents at conferences to judges, government officials and attorneys. His views on current IP developments have been featured in legal publications as well as mainstream media sources. In 2014, Professor Lim was one of 24 law professors worldwide nominated for a list of top 10 antitrust/competition law professors under 40 on the Antitrust & Competition Policy Blog.
In 2014, Professor Lim was inducted into the Chicago Council on Global Affairs' Young Professionals Ambassador corps. He is also a member of the Council's President’s Circle.
Professor Lim was the Inaugural Microsoft Teaching and Research Fellow at Fordham University School of Law. He interned with former Chief Judge Randall R. Rader at the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, and with former Commissioner William E. Kovacic at the Federal Trade Commission.
Professor Lim has graduate law degrees from Stanford University and the National University of Singapore (NUS). At Stanford Law School, he received the Franklin Family Fellowship and the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation Research Grant. He also has an undergraduate degree in law from NUS, and a degree in economics and management from the University of London (London School of Economics).
Professor Lim was an associate at Allen & Gledhill LLP, Singapore's largest law firm and consistently voted as a leading IP practice. He worked on litigation and arbitration matters as well as advised clients on IP and technology issues. After leaving practice, he was a research scholar at the Max Planck Institute for IP and Competition Law in Munich, Germany and the Queen Mary IP Research Institute in London, UK.
