Any student expecting post-graduate placement understands the value of learning how to apply the law outside of the classroom and outside the courtroom.
Challenge: Commercializing new technologies and delivering innovative products to the marketplace.
Technological Innovation: Generating Economic Results, or TI:GERŪ, is a collaboration between Emory Law and the Georgia Institute of Technology that unites law, management and science and engineering graduate students in classroom and research environments to consider the multidisciplinary process of innovation and taking inventions from the lab to the marketplace. Through the TI:GER program, students develop an appreciation for patent and technology law. They also have a unique opportunity to see how their knowledge is relevant, how it relates to various fields of study and how through working as a team they can successfully bring a new technological innovation to market.
An important feature of the program is that economic, regulatory and legal mechanisms are considered before the science and technology research is completed, enabling students to take the potential commercial and social impact into account in determining the direction of the research. TI:GER teams work together for two years and present their findings and projects in class and to outside groups in competition.
