I’m very pleased to announce that Polk Wagner, a long-time friend of mine, was one of eight members of the University of Pennsylvania Law School to be named a 2013 Penn Fellow.
Polk deserves this honor. He’s a recognized expert in intellectual property law and policy. He’s a co-author of Patent Law (Concepts and Insights) and maintains a special interest in the area of patent law. He was a co-director of the Center for Technology, Innovation and Competition from 2009 to 2012.
As a Penn Fellow, Polk joins an elite group that will be proud to have him as a peer. He’s shown true professionalism and expertise through years of hard work, commitment to education and drive to excel to be the best.
Since 2009, the Penn Fellows program has provided mid-career Penn faculty members with outstanding leadership development including forming alliances with distinguished academic leaders and working with strategic thinkers throughout the university.
Polk and I go back a long way and have spent many an enjoyable moment on the tennis court and discussing the law. Anyone who’s met Polk appreciates his sincerity and depth of knowledge of the topics he’s so passionate about.
