Prof. Falati: "My philosophy on Teaching law is not to focus just on law casebooks.  Students have greatly appreciated my deliberate practical tangents - my PROs – Practice Related Opportunities.  These take the Domestic PRO form in each of my three doctrinal IP law focused classes via our “practice detours” in between casebook case discussions, arranging for students to attend practicing IP lawyers events, helping students land internships, or via my actual new technology-focused Entrepreneurship Law clinic where I travel with pairs of law students to assist client Tech. Entrepreneurs and Technology start-ups in upstate NY and MA.  For the more adventurous and broadminded law students, I push them to think outside of U.S. IP law to see how other industrialized nations address similar challenges in Technology commercialization.  For some law students, my International PRO also appeals.  In past two Summers, six of my law students have gone with me to Italy for our Tech. & Innovation Summer program over at Padova Law School near Venice, with me arranging for some of our IP Law focused law students to stay and complete IP Summer Internships in Italy.  The student feedback on my teaching philosophy and pedagogy has generally been very positive indeed."
