UIC John Marshall Law School in Chicago was proud to present its 63rd Annual Intellectual Property Law Conference. The full-day conference on November 1 covered developments in artificial intelligence, patent, copyright, trademark, trade secret, antitrust, and information technology and privacy law developments.
In recent years, the law school expanded the scope of this long-standing IP event, moving from principally single-speaker sessions to panels with extended time for discussion and audience questions. As part of this new format, the conference faculty was expanded to include a greater mix of expert speakers and thought leaders from government, the judiciary, corporations, NGOs, academia and law practice.. The event featured participants from across the U.S., Europe, Asia, and South America, while still drawing extensively from local talent.
“This year, we had about 90 conference faculty from across the U.S. and abroad in 13 sessions,” said Daryl Lim, Director of UIC 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 UIC 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.uic.edu/2019/ .
The Hon. Diane P. Wood, Chief Judge for the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit, delivered the keynote address.
