Bio

Matt Lamkin comes to the College of Law after two years as a Fellow at Stanford Law School's Center for Law and the Biosciences. Prior to entering academia, he was in private practice in Chicago and Indianapolis, served as a law clerk to a federal judge, and worked as a policy advisor to the Mayor of Indianapolis. Matt's scholarship explores the intersection of health care, law, and ethics, with a particular focus on how the increasing commercialization of medical care is reshaping our understandings of disease and disability, informed consent and personal responsibility, and the role of government in regulating medical care.
