Brooklyn starts Trade Secrets Institute

Brooklyn Law School recently announced the formation of the Trade Secrets Institute, a project to provide high-quality objective coverage of important trade secrets cases, legislation and regulation from around the world.

The Institute is an initiative of the Dennis J. Block Center for the Study of International Business Law, and is funded by a grant form the Mai Foundation. It aims to serve lawyers, policy makers, and business people through a comprehensive website with up to date coverage of documents, briefs, motions and timelines of cases as well as current and pending laws and regulations.

Other components of the Institute include a new Trade Secrets Workshop and fellowship opportunities for two students who will be responsible for updating the database.

In addition to key faculty, the Institute will be overseen by an Advisory Board of attorneys with expertise in intellectual property and trade secrets who can consult and advise faculty and mentor the student fellows.
