Alumni Award Recipients

The Honorable J. Carlisle Overstreet, ’70, Outstanding Alumnus Award

The Honorable Richard H. Mills, ’57, Meritorious Service Award


3:00– 5:00  p.m.
Innovation's Impact on IP and on the Legal Profession by Professor David Hricik
2 CLE Hours including 1 Ethics Hour
InterContinental Buckhead Atlanta, Trippe 1 Room

Cost: $50 -- register with your annual dinner ticket or pay at the door (check only).
Co-sonsored by the Ethics and Professionalism Committee of the State Bar of Georgia Young Lawyers Division.

From the boring fact that the number of transistors doubles about every two years comes two related CLE sessions. The first will address how the Supreme Court and Congress have weakened patent law at a time when innovation is (literally) exponentially increasing. The second will address the ethical issues that technology creates for our profession. In both, Professor David Hricik will explain how 3D printing, artificial intelligence, and machine learning will impact our society and our profession, and provide tips on how to prepare and adapt for the new world that is… already here.


The Young Alumni Council will host this year’s After-Party featuring Jonathan Hedgepeth ’91 and the band Goat Rodeo. Graduates 1-15 years out will get a drink ticket. A cash bar will also be available. Sponsored by Elarbee Thompson.
