For the past few years, JIPLP and GRUR have had a fruitful collaboration, which has led to both the exchange of articles between the respective journals and the organisation of joint events.
This year JIPLP and GRUR will jointly organise yet another exciting event: a free half-day conference in London on 10 December 2019 to discuss 'The Future of IP in a Changing World'.
The programme features leading industry representatives, practitioners, and academics, as well as two keynote addresses to be delivered by, respectively, Sir Robin Jacob (Sir Hugh Laddie Chair of Intellectual Property Law at UCL) and Ms Ros Lynch (Copyright and IP Enforcement Director at the UK Intellectual Property Office).
Kindly hosted at the Tower Bridge offices of RPC, the conference will allow participants to discuss key issues in the patent, copyright, trade mark and enforcement fields.
