IP Draughts and his colleagues are putting together the final programme for this year’s outing of the week-long course, IP Transactions: Law and Practice, which will be held at University College London from 3-7 April 2017. This will the fifth year that the course has been run.
As part of a refresh of the course, we are replacing a few of the sessions, and revising some others. As a result we have a 30 minute slot at 4.30 pm on Wednesday 5 April, that has not yet been filled.
Readers of IP Draughts are creative, thoughtful, intelligent people, with their fingers on the pulse of what is important and topical in the worlds of IP transactions. So, what would you suggest for this slot? Is there a burning issue that IP transactional lawyers should be familiar with? Assume that the rest of the course deals with conventional subjects like IP and contract laws, IP contract drafting, practice in different sectors, etc.
If no-one comes up with a better solution, IP Draughts may have to fall back on discussing the implications of Brexit, including the importance of not making politically naive comments in a public forum.
The provider of the best answer (either on this blog or provided privately), as judged by IP Draughts, will receive a free copy of our latest publication, Drafting and Negotiating Commercial Contracts (Anderson and Warner, 4th edition, December 2016, Bloomsbury Professional Publishing, 378 pages).
