Law students redefining patent laws in Structural Genomics Consortium clinic

For a second year, SGC Toronto hosted a team of senior law students from the University of Toronto's Faculty of Law as part of an externship clinic to help SGC draft new agreements protecting our open access ethos and promoting our open science.

In this article, read how this team of bright lawyers-to-be under the guidance of law faculty and practicing lawyers have redefined 'trust' laws to ensure the usage of chemical probes remains in the interest of the public.
