“Exploring the Current Debate over Patenting Life”
Sponsor
Center for Law, Technology & the Arts - JOLTI (Journal of Law, Technology & the Internet) Symposium
JAN 28, 2011
8:30 AM - 2:45 PM
Location
Moot Courtroom (A59)
CLE Credit
Approved for 4.25 hours of in-person CLE credit
$100.00 for Case Law Alumni
$200.00 for all other attorneys

The symposium will address the ongoing legal debate that surrounds patents on potentially therapeutic biomedical technologies, including gene patents. The symposium will consider how other disciplines, including bioethics and economics, might help to inform the development of novel laws addressing the unique issues arising from the debate. The symposium will include a lecture discussing the role patents have played in spurring the innovation of adult stem cell-based therapies, as well as a presentation on genetic testing and the impact patents have had on patient access to new biomedical technologies.

Additional Information
en to the public at no cost.

4.25 hours CLE credit will be available for a $200 fee to lawyers who attend.
_____________________
At one-hour CLE activities, Ohio Supreme Court regulations require attorneys to be present for the entire hour to obtain credit. Therefore, registration for one-hour lectures will close at the time the event is scheduled to start. Everyone is welcome to attend the lecture, but we cannot submit CLE credit for late arrivals.

At events longer than one hour, we will submit credit based on an attorney’s arrival time and duration of attendance, but no less than the minimum of one full hour of attendance.

We encourage attendees to arrive at registration 20 minutes prior to the start of a lecture to sign in, obtain materials, and be seated.
