Fall 2014 CLB Workshop Speakers

CLB’s Workshop brings leading law professors and other academics from throughout the U.S. to present papers of interest to Stanford students, faculty, and members of the community. In previous years, the the Workshop has covered a variety of topics at the intersection of law and the biosciences, including bio-patents, DNA privacy, reproductive rights, science policy, bioethics, health insurance, neuro-law, and others.

This year the CLB Workshop Series will be held over both fall and winter quarters.  The Fall Workshop Series will begin on October 7, 2014. All of the fall talks run from 4:15 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. in room 285 at Stanford Law School. We have a great line-up for the fall, and all students, faculty, and members of the Stanford community are welcome to join us for these talks!
