Professor Erika Lietzan has been named a “Best Lawyer in America” in FDA Law and in Biotechnology and Life Sciences Law. 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 the District of Columbia. At Mizzou Law, she teaches FDA law, intellectual property, and administrative law. She is also a member of the Missouri bar (as well as the District of Columbia and North Carolina bars).
