Chemical engineering alum Tuneen Chisolm ’88G, a faculty member at Campbell Law School, has been awarded tenure and promoted to the rank of associate professor, according to a Campbell University press release.

Bringing an interdisciplinary perspective to her practice and teaching of law, Chisolm focuses on intellectual property (including patents and copyrights) and reparations. She has published multiple articles concerning the intersection of intellectual property and reparations in the University of Pennsylvania Law Review, the Yale Journal of Law and Technology, St. John’s Law Review, and the University of Pennsylvania Journal of Law and Social Change.

Prior to her career in academia, Chisolm was a litigation attorney with more than 10 years of experience focused on intellectual property, entertainment, unfair competition, and related counseling. 

Before entering the field of law, she worked for Fortune 100 companies as a research and development engineer in the biotechnology and specialty chemicals industry. She uses this former experience to inform her practice on product liability, toxic tort, and patent infringement matters. Chisolm is also part of the National Roster of Arbitrators for the American Arbitration Association and is licensed to practice law in three states.

Chisolm earned her MS in chemical engineering at Lehigh, a JD at the University of Pennsylvania, and her ScB in engineering at Brown University.
