Professor Directs International IP Roundtable in London

February 13, 2007

Fordham Law Professor Hugh C. Hansen is directing an international roundtable seminar on intellectual property (IP) law in London on February 16.

The Fordham/Queen Mary/Singapore Trialogue, entitled "The Next Ten Years in Intellectual Property Law: What Should Happen?  What Will Happen?", is a one-day invitation-only seminar to explore cutting edge issues in IP law. The event will provide an opportunity for the exchange of E.U., U.S., and Asian perspectives on current IP issues.

The discussions originated in the mid-1990s when the European Commission invited Professor Hansen and British professor Gerald Dworkin to direct a seminar addressing emerging issues in IP Law. Fordham Law; Queen Mary, University of London; and the Singapore IP academy continue to host the annual event.

Professor Hansen will moderate a panel entitled "The Next Ten Years in Trademarks" and will speak on "The Next Ten Years in Copyright.

Hansen also directs the Fordham Annual Conference on International Intellectual Property Law & Policy, which draws hundreds of IP practitioners and scholars from around the world to New York each year. The 15th annual conference is scheduled for April 12-13, 2007.

Fordham Law's IP program has been ranked by U.S. News and World Report as among the top 20 programs in the nation.
