About Nadia N. Sawicki

Prof. Sawicki, who joined the Loyola faculty in 2009, considers the hallmark of a good life to be an openness to ideas and conversations in pursuit of truth. Her areas of expertise, health law and bioethics, provide no shortage of opportunity for such conversations. Prof. Sawicki’s research interests include the accommodation of personal and professional beliefs in a pluralistic society; the appropriate use of persuasion by state actors; the law’s recognition of legal rights to recovery for invasion of contested harms; definitions of professional roles and ethical norms in medicine; and the state’s role in enforcing those norms. She approaches these problems from the disciplines of both law and ethical theory.
Her articles have been published in a variety of law reviews and peer reviewed journals, including the New England Journal of Medicine, Maryland Law Review, Cardozo Law Review, Yale Law and Policy Review, University of Pennsylvania Journal of Constitutional Law, Journal of Health Care Law and Policy, Virtual Mentor: The American Medical Association Journal of Ethics, and the American Journal of Bioethics.
Prior to joining Loyola, Prof. Sawicki held the inaugural George Sharswood Fellowship at the University of Pennsylvania Law School, where she taught bioethics and public health law. Prior to that, she served as a lecturer in History and Sociology of Science at the University of Pennsylvania's School of Arts and Sciences, practiced law with Wolf, Block, Schorr & Solis-Cohen, and clerked for the Honorable J. Curtis Joyner of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania.
