Emory University School of Law |

Emory Law's Associate Dean of Faculty and Law Professor Timothy Holbrook will receive a Distinguished Service Medal from the Linn Inn Alliance on March 22, at the New York Intellectual Property Law Association's Annual Dinner in Honor of the Federal Judiciary.

The award recognizes Holbrook's leadership "in helping to bring the American Inn of Court experience to the intellectual property community," said U.S. Court of Appeals Judge Richard Linn, the alliance's founder. Holbrook was the first president and a co-founder of the Atlanta Intellectual Property American Inn of Court in 2010. While in Chicago, he helped found the Richard Linn Inn of Court and served as program chair.

The American Inns of Court is designed to improve the skills, professionalism and ethics of the bench and bar. Its membership includes judges, lawyers, law professors and students.

Holbrook is regularly consulted as an expert on issues as diverse as the nuances of Apple's ongoing patent protection litigation to whether the U.S. Supreme Court will find human genes patentable. His areas of expertise are patent law, international patent law, patent litigation, trademark law and policy and property law.

The Linn Inn Alliance is the intellectual property specialty branch of the larger organization and represents 21 American Inns of Court throughout the United States and Tokyo.
