Science and Law Committee

The Science and Law Committee looks into the intersection between science – interpreted broadly – and the law. The Committee is currently working on a number of projects, including: solar and renewable energy initiatives; the ethical and practical implications of the “virtual law office” and other electronic aids to practice; life science start-ups in New York; neurological bases of perception and decision making; compulsory licensing and patent pooling; and working with the International Bar Association on a May 2014 conference in Edinburgh on Barriers to Access to Healthcare.
