Joining in 2010 with the Hankamer School of Business and the Baylor School of Engineering, the Baylor Law School brings yet another dimension to the i5 and TEI programs. Under the supervision of Baylor's Patent Law Professor, David G. Henry, Sr., law students in the law school's Intellectual Property Concentration participate in i5 and TEI projects by helping to identify and create recommendations for seeking legal advice for protecting the sponsors' intellectual property.
Baylor Law School's addition to the i5 and TEI programs benefits all involved. Project sponsors benefit from the identification of potentially valuable assets that might otherwise have gone unnoticed, while the law students benefit through practical application of their academic knowledge of IP law, and the business and engineering students gain exposure to guidance on issues on which their future successes may largely depend.
How can an IP Law student participate in TEI?
