The target group for the seminar is primary European participants who are attending law school or recent law graduates, who seek to use their education internationally and who are interested in law that reaches further then their curriculum. The seminar also offers an outstanding opportunity to network with other law students from all over Europe.
Today, design, and especially the right design has a tremendous meaning to consumers worldwide, and companies are spending great amounts on designs that appeals to the consumer. It is therefore of utmost importance that there are international, as well as national law regulations that protects the designs and prevents business competitors in copying them from one another. This makes the seminar utmost relevant!
Furthermore, intellectual property law is a relatively new discipline when it comes to law regulation, and we therefore believe that the subject is of high relevance to upcoming lawyers. Intellectual property law is also very international orientated, due to the international conventions that exist on the area, which therefore also makes the seminar interesting for European participants. We are hoping provide the participants with academic ballast, which they can hopefully bring to use in their future careers. We also wish to point focus towards the development and progress of intellectual property law, both inside the EU, but also worldwide.
To ensure a high professionalism and academic level, we will thoroughly pick out lecturers among highly recognized lawyers and specialists, all with experience within intellectual property law from the University of Copenhagen, law firms, private businesses and government authorities.
During the seminar 8-10 lectures will be held, with duration of approximately 90 minutes each.
The seminar also includes several social events, and sightseeing tours around Copenhagen will also be available. Furthermore we are planning on visiting museums with relevance to the topic, including Danish Design Center and Fritz Hansen.
