Bass, Berry & Sims attorney Clint Hermes will speak at Vanderbilt University’s The Law of Global Emergencies: The Vanderbilt Journal of Entertainment and Technology Law’s Annual Symposium on February 18, 2021. He will co-present in a session titled, “Law & Medicine,” with Professor Josephine Gittler of the University of Iowa, Clip Baltimore, Principal, BA Counseling Group and Professor Jody Lynee Madeira of the University of Indiana.
The Law of Global Emergencies: The Vanderbilt Journal of Entertainment and Technology Law’s Annual Symposium will examine the intersection of law and current events through a critical lens and explore the following:
- What is the best way to incentivize research during a pandemic: through government prizes or the promise of a patent monopoly?
- How has the United States’ technology transfer regime under the Bayh-Dole Act performed during COVID-19?
- When emergency action needs to be taken, how far can a governor go, and what role should the state legislature play?
- What responsibilities does the Food and Drug Administration have when approving clinical trials for novel, investigative treatments?
- And what legal and ethical considerations need to be made when vaccinating an entire country?
