On November 7, 2008, the University of California, Davis School of Law inaugurates the Fenwick & West Lecture Series in Technology, Entrepreneurship, Science, and Law (TESLaw) with a symposium on patent law developments and their probable effect on innovation, policy and the economic landscape. Symposium topics will focus on patent reform in Congress, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, and the courts, with a closing panel discussion on the confluence of these reforms. The symposium also will explore the application of the reforms to the major sectors of the technology industry: information technology and life sciences.
