Texas A&M Law launches healthcare and IP blog

Posted by Texas A&M School of Law on May 20, 2020 9:20:59 AM

Texas A&M University School of Law is launching a new blog and associated website www.TradeRxReport.com, which explores questions of access to affordable medicines and health care that arise at the intersection of intellectual property law and international trade.
