Organised by the Bar Council Intellectual Property Committee (“IPC”), this one-day seminar aims to cater to both new and seasoned practitioners of intellectual property law.
The morning session of this seminar features introductory presentations on the basics of intellectual property law, and three common intellectual property rights (“IPRs”) — trade marks, copyright and patents — by three intellectual property lawyers. There will be an interactive breakout session for participants to explore in depth the IPRs of interest with the relevant intellectual property lawyers.
The afternoon session covers two topics of interest in the intellectual property sphere:
- The relationship between competition law and intellectual property; and
- The recent UK Supreme Court’s decision in the Eli Lilly case on patent infringement (forum discussion). To cap off the event, all participants are invited to mingle with the speakers and members of the IPC at a nearby venue, which will be revealed at the end of the final session. Much excitement and suspense await!
