BEST & ASAP Present: Patent Law Review Panel

Join the ASAP and BEST program to hear about the field of intellectual property. This will be a formal discussion panel featuring patent agents, examiners and attorneys who all started off in a STEM field (science PhDs) and eventually transitioned to patent law. We have a very promising and diverse panel setup, including Cornell’s Intellectual Property Professor Oskar Liivak who obtained his PhD in Physics from Cornell University and his JD from Yale University. Lunch will be provided and students are encouraged to mingle with panelists during the lunch portion.
