The John Marshall Law School in Chicago was proud to present its 62nd Annual Intellectual Property Law Conference. This one-day conference on November 2 covered developments in patent and antitrust; trademarks, copyrights, music and entertainment law; IP management and in-house counsel practice; and information technology and privacy law.
Last year, the conference expanded the scope of this long-standing IP event, moving from principally single-speaker sessions to panels with plenty of time for discussions and questions from the audience. As part of this new format, the conference expanded its faculty to include a greater mix of expert speakers and thought leaders from government, the judiciary, corporations, NGOs, academia and, of course, practitioners. The event featured participants from across the U.S., Europe and South America, while still drawing extensively from local talent.
“This year, we had over 90 conference faculty from across the U.S. and abroad in 13 sessions,” said Daryl Lim, Director of John Marshall’s Center for Intellectual Property, Information & Privacy Law. “This was our biggest and best conference yet. We are grateful for the continuing support of the administration, our colleagues and our partners outside John Marshall. To better showcase our conference, we set up a website dedicated to giving the latest information about the event.” The website may be accessed at https://ipconference.jmls.edu/
The Hon. Pauline Newman, Circuit Judge for the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, delivered the keynote address.
