Nicole Morris, professor in Practice at Emory University School of Law and director of the TI:GER program (Technological Innovation: Generating Economic Results), was recently featured on the LawNext Podcast.

The weekly podcast is hosted by legal journalist and lawyer Bob Ambrogi, who has been writing and speaking about legal technology, legal practice and legal ethics for more than two decades. On LawNext, Ambrogi interviews entrepreneurs, thought leaders, and innovators “driving what’s next in law.” He is also the publisher and editor-in-chief of, a legal news and commentary site featuring the contributions of more than 24,000 bloggers from throughout the world.

In this episode of LawNext, Ambrogi and Morris discuss the goals of the TI:GER program. TI:GER is an innovative partnership between Emory and Georgia Institute of Technology that brings together graduate students in law, business, science and engineering to work on ways to take innovative ideas from the lab to the marketplace. Students learn from hands-on, simulated experiences that are designed to shape their early careers in law, business and technology.

Ambrogi also asks Morris about her own background and how it has impacted her leadership of the TI:GER program. Previously in her career, Morris was a chemical engineer for six years with 3M and Eli Lilly before attending law school. She later served as managing patent counsel at The Coca-Cola Company in Atlanta, where she was responsible for the development and implementation of the company’s global patent strategy and for providing day-to-day advice and counseling to business stakeholders.
