Law Students (JD)

Second year Emory School of Law students are selected for the TI:GER® program based on academic excellence and interest in technology or patent law.

While in TI:GER, JD students apply technology law in a laboratory setting, leveraging early stage technology developed by PhD candidates in Science and Technology from Georgia Tech. For JDs, this program provides students with experience working across disciplines, and developing an understanding of how researchers and businesses approach typical innovation issues.  JDs develop an appreciation of the issues and concerns faced from the perspective of the "client." Students learn how to work effectively in multi-disciplinary innovation teams regardless of the career setting.

Program Benefits
  • A competitive advantage in the post-graduate job market.
  • Networking experience and exposure to leading business executives and professionals in the technology and legal community.
  • Access to the TI:GER lab as a "hub" for students to gather for comradery, team meetings, brainstorming and to create an entrepreneurial culture.
