Posted by Texas A&M School of Law on Apr 2, 2021 12:48:51 PM

The Texas A&M Law Student Bar Association (SBA) recently hosted a very successful “Spring Break Stay-Cation” for the law school’s week-long spring break. SBA is the law school’s student body government, comprised of five representatives per class year, an ABA representative, vice president and president. SBA serves the student body by encouraging academic excellence, supporting professional and personal growth and working with administration, faculty, and the community at large to advocate for student needs.

The Spring Break Stay-Cation was a week-long student challenge crafted by the 2020-2021 SBA Board. The Spring Break Stay-Cation encouraged students to skip the travel this year, and instead participate in socially distanced activities in the Fort Worth community. This event was created in order to address COVID-19 related concerns with Spring Break travel. In an attempt to limit student travel, SBA created a challenge with various activities in the Fort Worth community and at home. Students who completed the full week of activities were given a gift bag for their commitment.

Posted by Texas A&M School of Law on Mar 4, 2021 12:20:19 PM

In March, Peter K. Yu, Regents Professor at Texas A&M University School of Law, joined Edward Kwakwa, assistant director general of the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), in the 10th Global Digital Encounter organized by FIDE (Legal and Business Research Foundation) and the Transatlantic Intellectual Property Academy. Professor Miriam Allena of Bocconi University in Italy moderated the event.

At the virtual encounter, which was accessible to over 600 network members and was subsequently made available online, Professor Yu explored the potential contributions of the U.N. Sustainable Development Goals to the intellectual property system and the role intellectual property law and policy can play in promoting these goals. He also shared his views on the recent proposal by India and South Africa to suspend selective intellectual property obligations under the WTO TRIPS Agreement to help contain and treat COVID-19.

"It is a pleasure to join Edward and Miriam in this very timely digital encounter," said Professor Yu.

"Issues relating to intellectual property and sustainable development have never been more important. As we continue to combat COVID-19, there is also the inevitable debate about whether the intellectual property system needs adjustments during the global pandemic."
