Is Intellectual Property Law Administrative Law? Duke Law Journal Symposium

This week the blog is hosting an online symposium entitled Is Immigration Law Administrative Law?, which is based primarily on a panel by the same name that was part of the 2016 Annual Meeting of the Association of American Law Schools. You can read the entire series, as well as other immigration-related posts, here. My contribution posted yesterday and explored the costs of immigration exceptionalism for the scholarly fields of immigration law and administrative law.

As I mentioned in that post, the Duke Law Journal’s annual administrative law symposium is this Friday, and the topic is about another administrative law exceptionalism: Intellectual Property Exceptionalism in Administrative Law. More information about the symposium is here, and if the past practice is still in place video of the symposium will be posted on the website shortly after the event.  Having read drafts of all the papers, I’m very excited about the substance of the symposium. I’ll report back about the symposium. Here’s the lineup:
