BioIP Faculty Workshop — Atlanta, GA

American Society of Law, Medicine & Ethics

The American Society for Law, Medicine & Ethics (ASLME) presents the second annual bioip Faculty Workshop on May 19-20, 2016, at Georgia State University College of Law in Atlanta, Georgia. Abstracts are due by Oct. 15, 2015.

The Workshop offers a unique opportunity for three scholars in their first decade of teaching to present their work in progress for in-depth critique and commentary by respected senior scholars in the field.

Topics for the workshop are at the intersection of biotechnology, life sciences, food and drug law, and intellectual property (hence, bioip), broadly defined. A Review Committee comprised of faculty from the Boston University School of Law, Georgia State University College of Law, and the Loyola University Chicago School of Law will select papers for the Workshop in a blind process. Papers should present an original thesis and contribute to scholarly literature. The Workshop will not review published work.

Scholars with less than ten years of teaching experience, including VAPS and Fellows, are eligible for participation in the Workshop. Those interested in participating should submit an abstract (up to 750 words) of the proposed paper (without identifying details) along with a c.v. to Ted Hutchinson, Executive Director of the ASMLE at by Oct 15, 2015. Selected abstracts will be announced later in Fall 2015 with the full draft papers due by April 1, 2016. The organizers will cover reasonable travel and lodging expenses for selected scholars.
