IP In The Trees
Our knowledge and understanding of intellectual property law advances in complex ways. Insightful scholarship contributes to the progress of the law by investigating doctrines and the competing policies they reconcile and embody. Lewis & Clark Law School is proud continue for its sixth year, a scholarly workshop series that aims to bring a mix of senior scholars and rising stars to our campus for enriching, challenging conversations with our faculty, our students, and the local IP bar. The workshops provide a forum for scholars to discuss their ideas and to receive feedback from readers who take a genuine interest in their papers.
During the 2015-16 academic year, Lewis & Clark Law School is pleased to welcome the following scholars:
