License Agreement PDF
The draft License Agreement can be used to agree upon terms and conditions to formally transfer intellectual property, patents, and technical information related to the design, manufacture and sale of products owned in totality or partially by the University under the terms of the Intellectual Property policy. The draft License Agreement is provided to allow for a better understanding of the content, information, and legalities involved in the "Tech Transfer" of intellectual property, and can be used as the basis for developing a licensing agreement when a tech transfer opportunity arises. The actual terms of a licensing arrangement that seeks to license IP rights held by Lawrence Tech must be approved by College and University administration.

Mutual Non-Disclosure Agreement PDF
The draft Mutual Non-Disclosure Agreement can be used in situations where discussions require the disclosure by one party to the other of confidential and/or proprietary information in the course of evaluating a potential relationship.
