Professor Erika Lietzan has again been named a “Best Lawyer in America” in both FDA Law and Biotechnology & Life Sciences. This marks the sixth year in a row for FDA Law and the twelfth year in a row for Biotechnology Law. The Best Lawyers honor is meant to identify the top 5 percent of practicing attorneys in the United States, and it is based on the judgment of one’s peers. Professor Lietzan practiced law for 18 years prior to joining the University of Missouri in 2014, including eight years as a partner in the Food and Drug group of Covington & Burling in DC. At Mizzou she teaches FDA law, intellectual property, federal courts, and administrative law. She is also a member of the Missouri bar (as well as an inactive member of the D.C. and North Carolina bars).
