Careers in Patent Law
Todd will discuss his career in patent law, as well as recent changes in patent law, including the importance of legal protection for novel intellectual assets that could have commercial implications. He will discuss what an invention is, how ideas become inventions, when inventions become commercial opportunities, and how patents protect an invention's value. He will also discuss developing commercial opportunities with technology transfers.
