OseiTutu Serves as Part of a Panel on Intellectual Property Enforcement

FIU Law Professor J. OseiTutu presented her current scholarship at the ASU Conference on the International Aspects of IP Law held on Nov. 30 and Dec. 1. The global conference, sponsored by the Center for Law, Science & Innovation and the Center for Law and Global Affairs at the Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law at Arizona State University, together with the American Society of International Law and the International Law Association (American Branch), was attended by experts on international intellectual property from South America, Europe, Africa, Asia, and across the United States.
