HR and Intellectual Property
A Conversation with Professor Elizabeth Townsend-Gard
Understanding intellectual property (IP) and how it affects office work, policies and life is difficult to navigate for any company or human resources (HR) professional. We use IP everyday, so utilizing practical applications of IP, with strong legal foundations, are vital to every organization’s daily life.
Luckily, these issues are at the core of what associate professor Elizabeth Townsend-Gard teaches in Tulane University Law School’s Online Master of Jurisprudence in Labor and Employment Law (MJ-LEL) program.

She touches on some of the strategies that the online program uses to prepare professionals to navigate the law and how it can be handled to best serve their companies and employees.
