Annual Meeting for 2013 and CLE on TI:GER program

The annual meeting of the Technology Law Section was held on June 12, 2013.

A brief business session was held, including election of the slate of officers for the 2013-14 Bar year; it was followed by a presentation on the TI:GER program, a collaborative program of Emory Law and Georgia Tech.

Our speakers included Emory's TI:GER program director, Prof. Anne Rector, and TI:GER student team members Adam Boger, JD ’13 & PhD (Case Western), and Alex Zavorski, MBA (Georgia Tech 2013). They discussed the TI:GER program and provided a demonstrative presentation about the TI:GER team's work to help commercialize an innovative medical device.

TI:GER, short for "Technological Innovation: Generating Economic Results," is an interdisciplinary program that joins Emory Law students with Georgia Tech MBA and PhD students to solve technology commercialization problems. The student team won the 2013 Georgia Tech Business Plan competition for its GoNow bladder control technology.

This event was gracious hosted by Morris, Manning and Martin.
