The Life Sciences Law & Policy Center at BCLT builds and expands upon the world-class research taking place in our IP & Competition Center. The Center offers a unique forum for students, academics, practitioners, and life sciences companies to explore IP, innovation, and regulatory issues.

In addition to creating a community for life sciences attorneys to discuss current issues, the Center will support research related to patent protection for drug innovations, bioethics, FDA regulations, AI and healthcare data, and health data privacy regulations.  

The strength of this Center is its breadth of subject-matter expertise. The Faculty and Instructors that drive and contribute to this Center are among the world’s leading experts on the unique issues impacting the life sciences and health care areas. Notably, the Center also analyzes the impacts that life sciences innovations are having on society, including the important issues of criminal justice and social justice being researched in our Center for Technology, Justice & the Courts. The cross-pollination of this type of expertise provides a unique environment for education, research, and policy development.

We host and sponsor academic-focused events and industry-focused events–most of which are open to the public at no charge. Check out our upcoming events. As for past events, many of them are available on-demand–and free of charge–in our video library, B-CLE.
