Lucas S. Osborn

Lucas Osborn is an expert in the area of Intellectual Property Law, with a focus on Patent Law. He has authored over half a dozen articles in this area, presented his research over 20 times across the nation, and been quoted in the Wall Street Journal, Bloomberg News and local publications. His most recent works explore three-dimensional printing technology and how it will affect the law, particularly intellectual property law.  

Professor Osborn serves as the director of Campbell Law School’s Intellectual Property Law Program. Before coming to Campbell Law, he clerked for the Honorable Kenneth M. Hoyt on the United States District Court for the Southern district of Texas and served as an attorney in the Intellectual Property section of Fulbright & Jaworski in Houston, Texas (now Norton Rose Fulbright). At Fulbright, his practice focused on patent litigation, patent prosecution and intellectual property licensing. He is also licensed to practice in front of the U.S. Patent and Trademark office.

Professor Osborn’s past work has looked at patent infringement for making an “offer to sell” an infringing device, the doctrine of patentable subject matter and the Federal Circuit’s jurisprudence. His works appear in journals including the U.C. Davis Law Review, San Diego Law Review, Texas A&M Law Review, the Stanford Technology Law Review, Santa Clara Law Review, and the Saint Louis University Law Journal.
