Seema Mohapatra

Full-time faculty

MD Anderson Foundation Endowed Professor in Health Law and Professor of Law

Biography

Seema Mohapatra is a leading expert in health law and bioethics. She is a tenured full-time professor of law at SMU Dedman School of Law who holds the MD Anderson Foundation Endowed Professorship in Health Law. She previously served as the Charles J. and Inez Wright Murray Distinguished Visiting Professor of Law at SMU. Prior to joining SMU, Mohapatra was a tenured professor with over a decade of experience, most recently at Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law, where she twice earned the Dean’s Fellow title and award for outstanding scholarship. Upon graduation from law school, she practiced transactional health law and compliance at two large firms in Chicago, Sidley & Austin and Foley & Lardner.

Mohapatra’s research centers around health care equity, the intersection of biosciences and the law, assisted reproduction and surrogacy, reproductive justice, and public health law. Her research during the COVID-19 pandemic has focused on how public health laws and policies impact marginalized populations, particularly people of color. She is an international authority on assisted reproduction and surrogacy, and she has ongoing collaborations related to those areas with scholars around the world. Mohapatra’s work has been published in various top law reviews, including the Emory Law Journal, the University of Colorado Law Review, the Harvard Law and Policy Review, and the Yale Journal of Health Policy, Law, and Ethics, and numerous peer reviewed journals, such as Hastings Center Report. Mohapatra is currently a co-investigator on a Making a Difference Grant from the Greenwall Foundation, where she is surveying laws related to periviable births with a focus on how they could be more equitable for nontraditional families.

Professor Mohapatra is the co-editor of “Feminist Judgments: Health Law Rewritten” (with Lindsay F. Wiley) (forthcoming 2022, Cambridge University Press). She is also a co-author of the third edition of the textbook “Reproductive Technologies and the Law” (with Judith Daar, I. Glenn Cohen, and Sonia Suter) (Carolina Academic Press). She serves on the Board of Directors of American Society of Law, Medicine, and Ethics and the Ethics Advisory Committee at the UNMC Global Center for Health Security. She also co-chairs the Health Justice: Engaging Critical Perspectives in Health Law and Policy Initiative, with Brietta Clark, Lindsay Wiley, and Ruqaiijah Yearby.

Professor Mohapatra is a frequent national speaker and is often consulted by the media about a wide variety of health law and bioethical topics, and her work has been featured in The Atlantic, The New York Times, Bloomberg News, and on National Public Radio.

Professor Mohapatra earned a J.D. degree from Northwestern University School of Law and has a master’s degree in Public Health with a concentration in Chronic Disease Epidemiology from Yale University. She earned a bachelor of arts in Natural Sciences (with a minor in Women's Studies) from Johns Hopkins University.
