Biography

Jennifer Arlen

Summer Faculty in Residence
J.D. New York University Law
Ph.D. New York University

Professor Jennifer Arlen is a respected authority on medical malpractice, corporate liability (including corporate crime), and corporate governance.  She is a member of the faculty at New York University Law School where she teaches torts, corporations, business crime and securities fraud litigation, and we are privileged to have her as a Faculty Member in Residence at UCLA School of Law in the summer.

Professor Arlen’s scholarly interests include experimental economics, and her article, “Torts, Expertise and Authority: Liability of Physicians and Managed Care Organizations,” co-authored with W. Bentley MacLeod, was published in the prestigious RAND Journal of Economics, a journal that rarely accepts work from law professors.
Previously, Professor Arlen was a Professor of Law and Business at the University of Southern California Law School, where she served as a founding director of their Center in Law, Economics and Organization. She has been a visiting professor at Harvard Law School, Yale Law School and the California Institute of Technology, and she was an Olin Fellow at Berkeley Law School.

After receiving her J.D. and a Ph.D. in economics from New York University, Arlen clerked for the Honorable Phyllis Kravitch of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit.  She began her career teaching law at Emory Law School.
