Expert Faculty at International Intellectual Property Seminar to Share Insights on Key Developments From Around the Globe

August 31, 2021

Businesses and supply chains are global. To stay relevant and offer comprehensive legal solutions, attorneys in law firms, corporate counsel, and government attorneys must master key developments in their own countries and keep abreast of trends elsewhere.

On Friday, October 8, 2021, UIC School of Law’s Center for Intellectual Property (“IP”), Information & Privacy Law has partnered with the World IP Organization and Kuhnen and Wacker to assemble twenty-five experts from Asia, Europe, and the United States to share their insights on key developments from around the globe. With a history dating back over two decades, the annual International IP Practice virtual seminar has long been a trusted and valuable resource on international dimensions of IP law practice.

As a testament to the significance of the event, WIPO’s Deputy Director-General for Patents & Technology, Lisa Jorgenson, will speak in a featured session on “Patents and Technology: Perspective, Truth, and Change.” The seminar also consists of four panel discussions highlighting developments and practical guidance across IP practice:

  • Key Developments in International Trademark & Design Law;
  • Key Developments in International Patent & Trade Secret Law and Policy;
  • Strategies for Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT) Filings; and
  • Intersections in International IP Law, Policy, and Practice.

A hallmark of IP Center events, each session incorporates a large portion dedicated to audience Q&A. Audience members can virtually join the discussion in real-time as they would during a live seminar. In addition, the innovative online conference platform supports a seamless transition between virtual networking and lively panel discussions, a host of features for attendees to interact with speakers, and the ability to showcase event sponsors.
