The Columbus School of Law hosts the Dean William Callyhan Robinson Intellectual Property Lecture Series each spring. This lecture series honors William Callyhan Robinson, the founding dean of the law school at the Catholic University of America, who authored The Law of Patents (1890), a leading treatise on patent law. These lectures will bring together academics, students, alumni, and members of the legal community to share perspectives on current issues in intellectual property law.
The inaugural lecture was delivered on Tuesday, March 29, 2011, by Professor Jeffrey Lefstin of the University of California, Hastings College of the Law, with an introduction by the Honorable Alvin A. Schall, Senior Circuit Judge, United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit. The lecture will be in the Slowinski Courtroom at the law school, and will be followed by a reception.
