Three aspects of information: a new event

Every so often, the IPKat shares one of his events with someone else. Readers may recall last February's enjoyable and successful joint event with the British Literary and Artistic Copyright Association (BLACA) on "Sensory Copyright" [on which see the Katnote here]. Well, this Kat can now reveal that there's another shared event in the offing.

"Three aspects of information: Current issues in trade secrets, client confidentiality and privilege" is the title of a sweet little seminar that the Kats are sharing with their friends at the Chartered Institute of Patent Attorneys (CIPA) on Wednesday 10 June 2015.  The venue is CIPA Hall,  way up on the 3rd Floor of its headquarters, 95 Chancery Lane, London WC2A 1DT.  The seminar begins at 5.30 pm, with registration from 5:00pm; expected finishing time is 6:30 pm, followed by refreshments and an opportunity to network.

The aspects of information?
The cast of speakers is impressive: Katfriend John Hull (consultant, Farrer, and author of a leading book and many articles on the subject) takes on trade secrets.  Gary Moss (EIP), an occasional contributor to this weblog [remember his classic "Beloff Baked, Apple Roasted, Britons Unscrewed", here?], tackles client confidentiality and enthusiastic litigator Ian Kirby (Carpmaels & Ransford) reviews privilege and 'without prejudice' communications.  IPKat blogmeister Jeremy is in the chair and one hour's worth of CPD credit is available to anyone who wants or needs to be continuously professionally developed.

The price is right too: admission is free, both for CIPA members and non-members [all IPKat events are free to attend, to make sure that students, trainees and those who bet their life savings on the expected outcome of last week's UK General Election can afford to join us]. You must however book a place if you do wish to attend since space is limited.

All the booking and contact details can be found on the CIPA website, here, so you don't have to email the IPKat to tell him you're coming -- but he hopes to see you there!
