Registration is now open for UIC John Marshall Law School’s 64th Annual Intellectual Property (IP) Conference on Friday, Nov. 13, 2020. For the first time, it will be online and accessible to anyone from their office or at home. With over 80 conference faculty, 14 sessions, virtual receptions, and an expected 500 registrants, its organizers expect it to be their largest and liveliest one ever. Sessions include:
- IP in a Post-COVID World
- IP and Asia: Rivalries and Opportunities
- Legal Realism and IP
- Breakout sessions focused on inhouse counsel, global IP, and privacy issues
- Current developments in patents, trademarks, designs, and copyright law
According to Professor Daryl Lim, an IP observer who helms the Conference, legal issues in IP have become increasingly complex. The overlay of far-reaching technological developments such as AI requires legal professionals to be able to both understand and communicate across the sub-specialties such as patent, copyright, trademark, and privacy laws. The same can be said about how cross-border commerce requires cross-border partnerships. For this reason, the increased the number of such sessions so that it continues to offer attendees takeaways that are practical, forward-looking, and comprehensive.
