World Intellectual Property Day Conference 2019
26 April 19
The Faculty of Advocates
The Faculty of Advocates is proud to present the 12th Annual World Intellectual Property Day Conference over lunchtime on Friday 26 April 2019.
Every year around April 26, we celebrate World IP Day in order to learn more about the role that IP rights (patents, trade marks, industrial designs, domain names, copyright etc.) play in encouraging innovation and creativity.
World IP Day aims to raise awareness of the impact IP has on daily life, to teach us about how IP protection promotes creativity and innovation and to celebrate the contribution of creativity and innovation to society.
This is an opportunity for us to celebrate IP in general and to reinforce the importance of IP to Scotland and the UK, and why it needs to be respected and protected. And we have a new UK IP Minister, Chris Skidmore MP.
This free event will once again be chaired by Roisin Higgins QC, Advocate and IP law specialist and Graeme McWilliams, Legal Counsel, Standard Life Assurance Legal. Our speakers this year include Susan Ferguson-Snedden, Head of Legal and Compliance at Historic Environment Scotland.
This conference is open to all solicitors, advocates, trainees, devils, students, and any other professionals with an interest in IP, and is an excellent networking opportunity.
As in previous years, we expect this conference to sell out fast!
Time: 11:30 – 14:00 BST
Location: Mackenzie Building, Old Assembly Close, Edinburgh
