The Hebrew University of Jerusalem (HU) presented an honorary fellowship to renowned intellectual property and technology professor Martin J. Adelman on June 3 during the 87th Board of Governors meeting in Jerusalem. 

Hebrew University president, professor Asher Cohen presented the Fellowship certificate, “in recognition of his esteemed career and expertise as a patent lawyer, in both the private sector and in academia; honoring his and [his wife] Susan’s boundless generosity towards the Jewish community and Israel; and in tribute to his passion and dedication to education, manifested through his close ties with the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, where he teaches an annual seminar in patent law and generously supports doctoral research in the brain sciences at the Edmond and Lily Safra Center for Brain Sciences (ELSC).” 

“It is a great honor to be awarded an honorary fellowship by Hebrew University, an institution that my wife and I first visited in 1968 on our first trip to Israel,” Adelman said. “I have been honored to teach patent law at several law schools in Israel, including most notably Hebrew University, where I have taught patent law annually since the 2010-2011 academic year. I have loved my interaction with its students, and I am pleased to see that enrollments have increased from 11 at the beginning to more than 60 in the current class. This growth shows a recognition by Hebrew University law students of how much Israel has become an innovation powerhouse.”

Adelman currently teaches patent law at Hebrew University and at Bar-Ilan University. 

He is the Theodore and James Pedas Family Professor of Intellectual Property and Technology Law (emeritus) at the George Washington University Law School. Previously, Adelman served as a professor of law at Wayne State University Law School in Detroit, MI, from 1973 until 1999, when he became professor emeritus.

Prior to his academic career, Adelman practiced patent law in the Detroit area. In 2003, Adelman co-founded the Munich Intellectual Property Law Center. He taught patent law there for many years and remains on its Scientific Advisory Board. He edited the nine-volume Patent Law Perspectives from 1988 to 2013 and authored or co-authored numerous law books and articles. Adelman has lectured on patent law in over 40 countries and testified as a patent-law expert in more than 190 patent-infringement cases. 

Along with his wife, Dr. Susan Adelman, he has been a longstanding, devoted friend of Hebrew University and numerous Jewish communal and civic causes.

Adelman received his Juris Doctor in 1962, a Masters of Science in Physics in 1959, and a Bachelor of Arts in 1958 from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor.
