Contact details


Dr. Sarid specialises in Intellectual Property Law. His research explores the regulatory, social, economic, and cultural conditions under which creative production succeeds or fails. Dr. Sarid's research is highly interdisciplinary, employing empirical, socio-legal, historical, and queer perspectives to create a comprehensive and nuanced approach to understanding complex legal issues. His current research project explores creative economies that produce high volumes of creativity in the absence of IP law, such as elite-chefs, tattoo artists, and drag queens.

Dr. Sarid’s work has appeared or is forthcoming in the Modern Law Review, Wisconsin Law Review, Yale Journal of Law and Humanities, and American University Law Review, among others. His publications have been cited by courts and academics including in submissions to Canada’s Supreme Court, the Australian government, and Israel’s Supreme Court, as well as global media outlets including Bloomberg, Politico, and Le figaro.

Dr. Sarid’s academic and advocacy work are committed to social justice and the public interest. Dr. Sarid participated in consultations to various organisations and global policy-makers. Before entering academia, Dr. Sarid served as a senior law clerk at the Israeli Supreme Court and was as an associate in the IP department of a leading law firm. Dr. Sarid received his SJD from the University of Toronto as a Vanier Canada Scholar; his LLM from the London School of Economics and Political Science with distinction, as a Chevening Scholar; and his LLB and BA in Humanities from the Hebrew University as a graduate of the University's Honours Program for exceptional students.
