Event Description:
The Chicago IP Colloquium is pleased to welcome Professor Christopher Yoo from the University of Pennsylvania Law School. Professor Yoo will present his written work “Rethinking the Idea/Expression Dichotomy: Insights from Linguistics and Cognitive Science.”

Professor Yoo, John H. Chestnut Professor of Law, Communication, and Computer & Information Science and the Founding Director of the Center for Technology, Innovation and Competition, is repeatedly recognized as one of the most cited scholars in administrative and regulatory law and intellectual property.

Professor Yoo has taught courses in Internet Law, Privacy, Antitrust, Introduction to Intellectual Property, Telecommunications Law, Copyright Theory, and Technology and Policy. He has authored five books and numerous articles and book chapters. His major research projects include investigating innovative ways to connect people to the Internet; analyzing the technical determinants of optimal interoperability; comparing antitrust enforcement practices in China, Europe, and the U.S.; promoting privacy and security for autonomous vehicles, medical devices, and the Internet’s routing architecture; and studying the regulation of Internet platforms, including network neutrality. Professor Yoo is also building innovative joint degree programs designed to produce a new generation of professionals with advanced training in both law and engineering.

Professor Yoo clerked for Justice Anthony M. Kennedy of the Supreme Court of the United States and Judge A. Raymond Randolph of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit. He practiced law with the D.C. firm of Hogan & Hartson (now Hogan Lovells) under the supervision of current Chief Justice John G. Roberts, Jr.

Professor Yoo is frequently called to testify before the U.S. Congress, Federal Communications Commission, Federal Trade Commission, foreign governments, and international organizations.

This event, which is free and open to the public, will be held at Loyola University Chicago School of Law, 25 E. Pearson (Corboy Law Center), Room 1403.
