Briefing Room


Patentable subject matter, non-patent innovation incentives, with Lisa Larrimore Ouellette

September 19, 2014 | Events

The Law, Finance and Governance program is hosting a talk on “Patentable Subject Matter and Non-Patent Innovation Incentives” on Thursday, Sept. 18, from 12:10 – 1:30 p.m. in Room 314. Lisa Larrimore Ouellette, assistant professor at Stanford Law School, will address the debate over patentable subject matter by focusing on non-patent incentives for genetic research and software—looking both  descriptively at what kinds of incentives the government is currently providing and normatively at whether these make sense from a holistic policy perspective. If you would like to attend, please RSVP to Gabrielle Stephens at
