Rai co-authors first set of ethical guidelines for Intellectual Property scholars
Arti Rai has joined with three other distinguished intellectual property scholars to craft a set of ethical norms for legal scholarship in their field. Rai and Professors Robin Feldman (UC Hastings), Mark A. Lemley (Stanford), and Jonathan Masur (University of Chicago) cite their concern about the increasing influx of corporate and private funding into empirical and policy research as motivation for writing the "Open Letter on Ethical Norms in Intellectual Property Scholarship,” to which more than 40 other academics had also signed on when it was published in the Harvard Journal of Law & Technology in early July.
Arti Rai, the Elvin R. Latty Professor of Law and co-Director of the Duke Law Center for Innovation Policy, is an internationally recognized expert in intellectual property (IP) law, administrative law, and health policy. She has published over 50 articles, essays, and book chapters on IP law, administrative law, and health policy.
