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!

No comments:

All comments must be moderated by a member of the IPKat team before they appear on the blog. Comments will not be allowed if the contravene the IPKat policy that readers' comments should not be obscene or defamatory; they should not consist of ad hominem attacks on members of the blog team or other comment-posters and they should make a constructive contribution to the discussion of the post on which they purport to comment.

It is also the IPKat policy that comments should not be made completely anonymously, and users should use a consistent name or pseudonym (which should not itself be defamatory or obscene, or that of another real person), either in the "identity" field, or at the beginning of the comment. Current practice is to, however, allow a limited number of comments that contravene this policy, provided that the comment has a high degree of relevance and the comment chain does not become too difficult to follow.
