November 8, 2013 | John Marshall Law School | Chicago
Science and the law interact in key ways in health care, from drug patents to how trade agreements affect access to medicine. A daylong symposium Nov. 8, 2013, presented by the online legal journal Review of Intellectual Property Law at The John Marshall Law School in Chicago will feature experts from around the world tackling these topics and more. Specialists in intellectual property (IP) law will examine issues influencing health care both in the United States and around the world. At the “The Intersection of IP and Public Health” program, they will offer insights into whether stronger protections of IP rights can spur and reward innovation, or if a relaxation of protections can promote access.
Attorney Kevin Noonan, Ph.D., a partner at McDonnell Boehnen Hulbert & Berghoff LLP and founding author of the blog Patent Doc, will be the luncheon keynote speaker.
