Programme Synopsis

Stay current on the latest IP law developments in Singapore and the UK with this flagship programme for IP professionals. Where relevant, developments in the EU, US, and Australia are also discussed in this series, which typically runs in the first quarter of the year.

Get important updates on the four main domains of IP in four half-day sessions across January and February 2020: Copyright, Patents, Trade Marks/Passing Off and Breach of Confidence/Privacy and Data Protection.

Like its previous sell-out editions, this 7th edition returns with a line-up of prestigious speakers, comprising distinguished academics, experienced practitioners, industry representatives, and representatives from the public sector.
