Access to ‘all the world’s knowledge’ is an ancient aspiration; a less venerable, but equally vigorous, universalism strives for the borderless protection of authors’ rights.

ABOUT THE SHIDLER LECTURE SERIES
The Shidler Lecture Series is named after Roger L. Shidler (UW Law class of 1924), a founder of the law firm Shidler, McBroom, Gates & Lucas (now K&L Gates). Through the years, the firm grew to become one of Seattle’s most vibrant and influential law practices. To celebrate Roger Shidler’s legacy, this series brings outstanding academics, judges and practicing lawyers to UW Law to discuss leading issues in intellectual property law, an ever-more important economic driver for our region and the global economy.
