Making the Case Against Gene Patents: an Evening with ACLU Women’s Rights Project Attorney Sandra Park
S.J. Quinney College of Law, Sutherland Moot Courtroom
Sandra S. Park is a Senior Staff Attorney in the ACLU Women’s Rights Project. At WRP, Sandra engages in litigation, policy advocacy, and public education at the national, state, and local levels to advance the rights and civil liberties of women and girls. She represented twenty medical organizations, geneticists, and patients in a groundbreaking lawsuit challenging patents granted on two human genes related to breast and ovarian cancer, resulting in a unanimous 2013 U.S. Supreme Court ruling invalidating gene patents.
This event is sponsored by the Center for Law and Biomedical Sciences at the S.J. Quinney College of Law, the College of Nursing at the University of Utah, and the ACLU of Utah.
