    State Bar to Host First-Ever Biotech & the Law Conference

    Madison, WI – The State Bar of Wisconsin PINNACLE® is hosting an international biotech conference, May 5-7, 2016, in Madison. The Biotech and the Law Conference – one of the first of its kind – will unite experts in science, business and law and will encourage those individuals to learn from each other, building a foundation for mutual success.

    “This conference addresses the critical dimensions of the biotech ecosystem, science, law, policy and economics, and brings together the sectors that make it all happen,” said Attorney James Casey, one of the primary conference planners. “This is not your typical presentation-focused conference; it provides experiential opportunities, discussion and networking.”
