Mason Law Professors Attend CPIP Fellowship Conference Meeting

On July 24–26, three Mason Law professors participated in the first conference meeting of the law school's Center for the Protection of Intellectual Property's (CPIP) Thomas Edison Innovation Fellowship Program held in Avon, Colorado. 

Professors Eric Claeys, Joshua Wright, and Adam Mossoff, who is Co-Director of Academic Programs & Senior Scholar for CPIP, served as Senior Commentators, speaking on research methodologies in the field of intellectual property and participating in roundtable discussions. 

The Edison Fellowship is one of the centerpieces of CPIP's mission to promote a more balanced academic discussion about intellectual property rights. The non-resident fellowship consists of a year-long period of study and research culminating in the production of substantial research papers to be published in law or other peer-reviewed academic journals.
