Bridging Law & Technology 1 - 2 - 3 - 4

Students are immersed in copyright analysis, patent and trademark issues not to mention crafting stock option plans. Theyre totally capable of doing this type of work, Schlossberg notes.

When students hit a wall where the law doesnt match up to the innovation they can call on other professors. For example, last year a Muslim client wanted to form an Internet banking company that didnt charge fees or interest because that runs counter to his beliefs. The students consulted with securities law professor William Tyson to try to figure out a way a bank could run this way. The exercise opened up a dialogue where the academic met the regulatory, and theory met practice.
