In Memoriam: Sarah Tran

I was deeply saddened to hear that my co-blogger, SMU Law Professor Sarah Tran, has lost her battle with leukemia at age 34. This post from SMU describes some highlights of her incredible life, and this story describes her amazing resolve to continue teaching despite her illness, but neither can fully capture her warmth, generosity, courage, or boundless optimism and enthusiasm. Her legal scholarship (including important work on the PTO's administrative powers) is available here, and her many contributions to Written Description are available here. Sarah will be sorely missed by many, including the patent law community. I hope Written Description readers who have enjoyed her work will consider making a contribution to the fund that has been created to support her two young children, the Tran Children Development Fund.
