5th Developments in IP Law Series

16 Jan 2018 - 8 Feb 2018


WHY YOU SHOULD ATTEND

The “Developments in IP Law” Seminar Series is IP Academy’s annual signature programme for IP professionals in Singapore. The series typically takes place in the first quarter of each year, and discusses IP law developments in the preceding year. The series focuses on developments in Singapore and the UK, and where relevant, developments in the EU, US and Australia.

This series comprises 4 half-day seminars covering the following main domains of IP: Copyright, Patents, Trade Marks/Passing Off and Breach of Confidence/Privacy and Data Protection in January and February 2018.

Like the sell-out previous editions, the 5th edition will again feature a prestigious speaker line-up comprising distinguished academics, experienced practitioners, industry representatives and representatives from the public sector. It is a must-attend programme for anyone with an interest in IP.
