When considering international expansion, a company should take moves to protect its brand, name and trade secrets before embarking overseas, according to participants in a seminar at the Benjamin Cardozo School of Law at Yeshiva University in New York.
“The Center for Real Estate Law & Policy will help bridge the gap between classroom and practice, and will work to prepare graduates to tackle the full range of legal and business issues that confront New York’s vibrant real estate industry,” said Professor Stewart Sterk, director of the center.
Moderator Judith Dobrzynski, a veteran arts journalist, started the discussion by observing that since ISIS’s rise, antiquity collecting has become deplored as a source of funding for the extremist group.
The Cardozo team included students Brett Dovman '16, Melissa Trenk '17 and Daniel Resnick '17, with help from fellow student Danielle Siegel '17 and coach Jillian Gautier, Program Director of the Samuel & Ronnie Heyman Center on Corporate Governance and Adjunct Professor of Law.
Indeed, this was an unusual evening: the presentation of the 2015 International Advocate for Peace Award by the Cardozo Journal of Conflict Resolution to the legendary folk group Peter, Paul, and (posthumously) Mary.
