Professor Mark Lemley spoke with The Daily Journal's David Ruiz about the upcoming launch of the Juelsgaard Intellectual Property and Innovation Clinic and how the clinic aims to prompt students to go beyond industry-specific battles and learn more about IP policy.

Stanford Law School appointed Phillip Malone as the new director and professor of law at the soon-to-launch Juelsgaard Intellectual Property and Innovation Clinic, the school announced Monday. Malone, previously tenured at Harvard Law School and director of the Cyberlaw Clinic at the Berkman Center for Internet and Society there, is set to begin in July.

The new clinic will focus on educating students on policymaking and administrative law beyond industry-specific patent battles, said Mark Lemley, director of the Stanford Program in Law, Science and Technology.

"On policy issues, we want students to go beyond software patent debates, beyond the content industry versus the tech industry," Lemley said. He said Malone's work in intellectual property, technology access in developing countries, public access to legal information and policymaking surrounding innovation make him an excellent fit for the new role.
