Professor Jessica Magaldi
Office: W-476, 1 Pace Plaza, New York City
Telephone: 212-618-6445

Jessica A. Magaldi is an Assistant Professor in the Lubin School of Business at Pace University, teaching Business Law and Advanced Business Law, as well as a number of specialty law classes including Cyberlaw, Intellectual Property Law, Employment Law and International Law on the undergraduate and graduate levels and in the iPace program. Since 2014, Dr. Magaldi is Director of the Business Honors Program on the New York City campus and Chapter Advisor to the Pace University Chapter of Beta Gamma Sigma, for which she won in 2016 the Outstanding Chapter Advisor Award for all international BGS chapters.

Dr. Magaldi's research reflects her interest in understanding law and policy through the lens of whether and how business and societal goals are advanced. To this end, she has three areas of substantive focus—the law of emerging technologies, employment-related legal issues, (including at the intersection of social media / technology law and employment law) and finance and tax law, especially as affected by technological innovation. She has an additional interest in related pedagogy, creating case studies that allow her to help students (and other instructors) apply theory to practice. All four of these areas share as an important theme as they examine due process considerations, procedures in place to ensure that everyone is treated fairly and systems are transparent.

In addition to her teaching and scholarly research, Dr. Magaldi is a business and legal consultant, specializing in technology and intellectual property law and transactions for emerging and established companies. She advises clients on substantive legal issues and also works with in-house legal departments on business process reengineering and employee training. Dr. Magaldi was recently engaged by NYSE Euronext to manage the company's Strategic Intellectual Property Initiative.

Dr. Magaldi received a B.S., magna cum laude, from the State University of New York at Albany and a J.D. from New York University School of Law, where she was Editor-in-Chief of the New York University Review of Law and Social Change.
