Supported by two new major funding streams, the law school’s IP Venture Clinic is a “new economic force,” according to a recent news story in The Plain Dealer.

In the article, writer Robert L. Smith tells the story of 21-year-old Felipe Gomez del Campo V – a young Case Western Reserve University scientist. He invented secret fuel technology for jet engines and obtained a patent through the law school’s IP Venture Clinic with the help of law students.

Such entrepreneurs are benefiting from recent expansions to the law school’s IP program, which is growing even more thanks to the generosity of an alum and a foundation.

The Burton D. Morgan Foundation has committed $679,400 to expand Case Western Reserve University School of Law's intellectual property center among the more than $2.5 million in grants recently approved by trustees of the Hudson, Ohio-based private foundation.

The foundation's three-year commitment to the law school's IP Venture Clinic follows a recent $3 million pledge from the Spangenberg Family Foundation to endow the newly named Spangenberg Center for Law, Technology & the Arts.
