Texas A&M Law Mourns the Passing of Legal Legend Judge Joe Spurlock II

Posted by Texas A&M School of Law on Jun 10, 2020 3:04:31 PM

Texas A&M University School of Law mourns the passing of Judge Joe Spurlock II, senior professor of law and director of the Asian Judicial Institute. Judge Spurlock – a colleague, friend and legal legend – became a founding faculty member of the law school when its long-term success was considered wishful thinking by many. By the time he joined the faculty, Judge Spurlock had already spent years in private practice and served as an assistant criminal district attorney, a member of the Texas Legislature, a trial court judge and an appellate justice.

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. With the increasing impact of the Coronavirus on the global economy and our healthcare systems, the importance of issues around the affordability of pharmaceuticals, access to healthcare and medication and globalization become more apparent each day. The inter-relationship of health, trade and intellectual property has been a “hot topic” since the 1980s, when the World Trade Organization was established and the TRIPS Agreement on intellectual property rights was enacted. The current global pandemic merely underscores the need to find a workable solution to the challenge of ensuring innovation and access to medicines on a global scale – and the value of a forum focused on that topic.

"Does anybody know anything about this stimulus money?"

The question struck Texas A&M Law professor Gabriel Eckstein like a sledgehammer. Posed to an internal listserv by an IT staffer at the law school, Eckstein immediately saw the greater implications. The massive $2.15 trillion stimulus package known as the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act came with a blizzard of rules and requirements, all encoded in legalese that few could understand.
