Meet Some of our Alumni

Aziz Ahmad '06aziz ahmad

Aziz Ahmad entered Dayton Law’s LL.M. degree program because he was “trying to carve something out” when it came to combining his interests in patent law and his passion for neuroscience and biotechnology. Ahmad grew up in a family of physicians and, for a time, he felt that he would follow in his family’s footsteps. “Doctors apply the science that researchers develop, but by pursuing a law degree I felt I could make even more of an impact,” he explained. “I realized that patent law was a way I could work directly with the researchers to protect their research, and then work with lawmakers to help them understand the science so they can make the best decisions.”

Ahmad majored in biology at Transylvania University in Kentucky, but then decided to pursue a J.D. instead of an M.D. He received his J.D. from Dayton Law in 2006 and then, in 2008, Ahmad became the first graduate from Dayton Law’s LL.M. program. After graduation, he was hired as Intellectual Property counsel for Osiris Therapeutics, Inc. in Columbia, Maryland, a company that develops and commercializes cellular therapies based on stem cells isolated from adult bone marrow.
