Intellectual Property and Technological Innovation

Technological innovation and intellectual property constitute an increasingly important field of legal practice and a key focus area within Emory Law’s curriculum. At the core of this study at Emory Law is our Technological Innovation: Generating Economic Results (TI:GER®) program in collaboration with the Georgia Institute of Technology, which brings together graduate students in law, business, engineering, and science to transform promising research into economically viable projects. Several renowned Emory Law faculty members focus their research in intellectual property law, protecting the work of innovators, not unlike our TI:GER students, and tackling theoretical frameworks borne from emerging technologies throughout the United States and the world.

TI:GER (Technological Innovation: Generating Economic Results) Program

TI:GER®, is an award-winning collaboration between Emory Law and the Georgia Institute of Technology. TI:GER brings together graduate students in law, business, engineering, and science to work on start-up projects with a goal of transforming highly promising research into economically viable projects. It’s not a typical law school experience. Electronic medical records, cardiovascular drugs, prosthetic legs, water-testing devices—our students have worked on the commercialization of all these through TI:GER. Emory Law students provide a crucial legal perspective to their TI:GER teams, helping bring to the forefront ideas and inventions that can change the world and save lives.
