Albany Law School recently made available a new international learning opportunity for students interested in innovation, technology, and entrepreneurship law: the Innovation & Technology Law Summer School, June 18-23 at Università di Padova Law School in Padova, Italy.

At the Innovation & Technology Law Summer School, Professor Shahrokh Falati from Albany Law School, Professor Claudia Sandei from Università di Padova Law School, and other law faculty from leading universities in the U.K. and Macedonia will teach and discuss legal issues affecting technology development and innovation (e.g., how European law v. U.S. law affects commercialization of new technologies).

Enrollment is open to Albany Law School students, and M.B.A. or master's students at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) or the University at Albany studying technology commercialization. Enrollment is capped and on a first-come basis, with the majority of the attendees anticipated to be law students and entrepreneurs from Italy. This subsidized course provides the opportunity to network with international law students, lawyers, and entrepreneurs, and to explore the cities of Padova and nearby Venice.
