Professor Erika Lietzan has been appointed as one of eight new public members of the Administrative Conference of the United States (ACUS). ACUS is an independent federal agency dedicated to improving the administrative process through consensus-driven applied research and providing nonpartisan expert advice and recommendations for federal agency procedures. Its public members are academics, practicing lawyers, and other experts drawn from the private sector. Professor Lietzan’s scholarship focuses on the intersection of Administrative Law and Intellectual Property Law, as they relate to medical products, and before joining Mizzou Law in 2014 she practiced before the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for nearly two decades. In addition to teaching Administrative Law at the law school, she teaches two classes with a regulatory focus: Regulation of Drugs and Medical Devices, and Food Law & Policy.
