We are pleased to announce the 2012 Technology and Intellectual Property (TIP) Group annual conference! The conference will run February 13th to 16th from 12:30 PM to 2:00 PM each day in FLB. Lunch, as always, will be provided.
This year’s conference focuses on recent developments in patent law, including pharmaceutical patents and non-practicing entities. We have invited a variety of speakers to discuss these topics – patent litigators, industry representatives, professors who specialize in intellectual property, and even a Federal Court justice.
Whether you’ve wanted to litigate patents since you could walk, you just want to get an idea of what patents are all about, or you want to find out whether you can patent your course summaries, you should definitely join us!
