Professor Ann Lousin
On June 17 and 28, 2013, she gave the first two of several planned interviews to the oral history project of the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Foundation in Springfield, IL. Mark DePue, the oral historian of the library, interviewed her as a “noted Illinoisan” with more than 40 years’ experience in Illinois public life. These first two interviews addressed her early life and her work at the Sixth Illinois Constitutional Convention in 1970, where she was a research assistant.
Future interviews will concentrate upon her views of the Illinois constitution, her work with the Illinois House of Representatives in the early 1970’s, and her subsequent work with state and local government.
Assistant Professor Lurene Contento
In June, she completed a three-week teaching stint at the China Intellectual Property Training Center in Beijing as part of John Marshall's IP LLM program in conjunction with the State Intellectual Property Office. She taught 20 students legal writing, research, and other lawyering skills. The class met three hours a night, five nights a week. The students were Chinese patent attorneys and other IP professionals working in Beijing.
Adjunct Professor Jeffrey Cross
He was a presenter for the webinar program “Reverse Payments: Impact of U.S. Supreme Court on Hatch-Waxman Litigation” presented by the Intellectual Property Owners Association. The program on June 20, 2013, Cross, an anti-trust expert, focused on the United States Supreme Court’s decision in FTC v. Actavis. The court denied antitrust immunity for litigation settlements, including reverse payments from innovative pharmaceutical companies to generic companies.
