We are pleased to announce that Professor Richard Gold has accepted to serve the Faculty as Associate Dean (Graduate Studies) for a three-year term which started on September 1st, 2015.
A James McGill Professor, Richard Gold was the founding Director of the Centre for Intellectual Property Policy. He teaches in the area of intellectual property, international intellectual property, comparative intellectual property, innovation policy and intellectual property management. His research generally focuses on the life sciences.
In sharing the news, Dean Jutras indicated that “the appointment of a colleague with his energy, discipline, creativity and rigour is a manifestation of the strongest possible Faculty commitment to the health of its graduate studies program.”
