in Conversation

As the named party in one of the most high-profiled intellectual property law cases in modern history, Tam offers a unique and nuanced perspective about his legal journey from the applicant’s point of view. Michele Goodwin is a Chancellor’s Professor at the University of California Irvine, an Executive Committee Member of the American Civil Liberties Union, and author of the forthcoming book, Policing The Womb.
