Education
B.S., summa cum laude, Marist College
J.D., Yale Law School

Background
Maureen A. O'Rourke joined the faculty of the School of Law at Boston University in 1993 after working at IBM Corporation, where she handled a variety of issues surrounding software licensing. Her primary academic interests lie at the intersection of intellectual property law and other fields, such as contract and antitrust law, particularly in the context of software and high technology. Her scholarship has focused on such questions as whether intellectual property law should preempt particular terms of software license agreements. She was one of the first to consider comprehensively the status of hyperlinking on the Internet under copyright law and the viability of a trespass claim for access to and use of a Web site. She is a co-author of one of the leading copyright casebooks in the U.S., Copyright in a Global Information Economy (Aspen Law & Business). She has published articles in the law reviews of Columbia, Duke, Iowa and Minnesota, the technology journals of Berkeley, Harvard and Boston University, and other publications including the Journal of the Copyright Society. She is currently the associate reporter on the American Law Institute's (ALI) Principles of Software Contracting project and is a member of the ALI.

Prior to becoming dean, Maureen O'Rourke taught courses in commercial law and intellectual property law in addition to helping supervise the student-run Journal of Science and Technology Law. In May 2000, she became the School's sixth recipient of the Metcalf Award, the University's highest teaching honor. She served as acting dean for two years prior to accepting the post of Dean of the School of Law in 2006. She has lectured extensively and has been a visiting professor at Columbia University Law School and LaTrobe University in Australia.
