Podcast: Professor Bill Janssen

Welcome to the Charleston School of Law Podcast Summer Series. Take us with you to the beach, on the deck, on the road and go behind-the-scenes of law school with faculty and alumni as they share their career experience and thoughts on the latest legal news.

Charleston School of Law Professor William Janssen joined the faculty in 2006 after a lengthy practice with the mid-Atlantic law firm of Saul Ewing LLP, where he was a litigation partner, a member of the firm’s seven-person governing executive committee, and chair of the interdisciplinary Life Sciences Practice Group.

Janssen  concentrated his practice in pharmaceutical, medical device, and mass torts defense and risk containment.  In practice, he was involved in various high-profile drug cases, including the national diet drug “fen-phen” litigations and DES litigations.  Both as a practitioner and in academia, he has spoken and written frequently on pharmaceutical and medical device law.
