Volunteer speakers – a big thank you!

Take a bow...

Take a bow…

Our 5-day course, Intellectual Property Transactions: Law and Practice, has now been running for 3 years at UCL, and we hope it will be a long-term fixture. Designed for newly-qualified UK IP lawyers, it has also attracted lawyers and patent attorneys from all over the world, including the USA, Japan, Costa Rica and Brazil.

The success of the course is based largely on the quality and commitment of its volunteer speakers. We would like to thank them all for preparing high-quality materials and delivering stimulating lectures and workshops, as confirmed by the excellent feedback that this course gets every year from its students.

The course is led by Mark Anderson of Anderson Law and UCL, and by Professor Sir Robin Jacob of UCL. Special mention should be made of the following people, who lead teams from their firms giving an extended programme of talks:

Mark Lubbock from Ashursts, whose team runs a half-day session on IP aspects of M&A transactions
Nigel Jones from Linklaters, whose team runs a half-day session on IP as security
John Enser from Olswang, whose team runs a half-day session on media transactions
