David W. Opderbeck

Seton Hall University Law School
Professor of Law & Director, Gibbons Institute of Law, Science & Technology
Newark, NJ, USA


Professor Opderbeck’s work focuses on the regulation of access to scientific and technological information. His published work has employed the tools of game theory, classical microeconomics, and statistical analysis to address issues such as settlements in Hatch-Waxman litigation, cybersecurity policy, intellectual property restrictions on essential medicines in developing countries, open source biotechnology, patent damages reform, and the interaction of law and social norms concerning music file sharing.

Professor Opderbeck’s interest in cybersecurity law and policy included a multi-year grant-funded project sponsored by the Bergen County, New Jersey Prosecutor’s Office, which included new courses, continuing legal education programs, and the creation of a governmental working group on cybersecurity and cybercrime.  The governmental working group recently worked on a new online child pornography bill that was signed into law by Governor Christie.  Professor Opderbeck frequently lectures to law enforcement agencies and other groups on cybercrime, cyberterrorism, and civil liberties.

In addition to his traditional legal scholarship, Professor Opderbeck is interested in the philosophical and moral foundations of information policy and other aspects of the law. He has written on ethical, philosophical and theological issues in law and jurisprudence, and currently is completing a doctorate in philosophical theology regarding the intersection of neuroscience and the law.
