  • Legal Oversight of Innovation


    Credits: 1

    This course offers students an opportunity to look closely at the process of innovation and technological development in the United States. Throughout the course students will be given the opportunity to place innovation in the context of law and regulation by considering how areas such as products liability, business financing, securities regulation, and otherwise apparently disparate areas of the law can affect development of new ideas and new technologies. This course will include both law students and students from the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering, and thus will allow for interaction of law students with technical students, providing great breadth to the understanding students will gain from taking this course. The course is offered on a pass/fail basis only.
