BioIP New Scholars Workshop—Boston, MA

American Society for Law Medicine and Ethics and Boston University School of Law

The American Society for Law, Medicine & Ethics (ASLME) invites submissions for the first annual bioIP New Scholars Workshop, which will take place May 7, 2015, at Boston University School of Law. Abstracts are due by Oct. 1, 2014.

The Workshop will offer a unique opportunity for three new scholars (in their first decade of teaching) to present their draft scholarship 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/FDA and IP (hence, bioIP), broadly defined. A Review Committee 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 fewer then ten years of teaching experience interested in having their papers reviewed should submit an abstract (up to 500 words) of the proposed paper (without identifying details) along with a CV to Ted Hutchinson, Executive Director of the ASLME at by Oct 1, 2014. Selected abstracts will be announced later in Fall 2014 with the full papers due one month prior to the date of the Workshop. The organizers will cover reasonable travel and lodging expenses. VAPs and Fellows are eligible for the Workshop.

The Workshop Committee consists of faculty from: The Boston University School of Law; Georgia State University College of Law; Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law; and the Loyola University Chicago School of Law.
