Lecture series on transnational intellectual property law to feature industry experts

The Law and Technology Lab (LTEC Lab) at Windsor Law has partnered with the European IP Institutes Network Innovation Society (EIPIN-Innovation Society) to launch a new speaker series.

The virtual events will feature international experts on intellectual property law of varying experience — from graduate students to early-stage and experienced scholars — from around the world.

The series will kick off on Friday, Jan. 29, at 12 noon and will continue every Friday thereafter for the rest of the winter term. The Jan. 29 talk, “Universalism in International Copyright Law Through the Lens of Marrakesh,” will be presented by Graeme B. Dinwoodie, Global Professor of Intellectual Property Law at IIT Chicago-Kent College of Law.

He will assess the significance of the Marrakesh Treaty to Facilitate Access to Published Works by Visually Impaired Persons and Persons with Print Disabilities through the lens of a conventional consideration that has been around since the formation of the Berne Convention: to what extent does it alter our understanding of the notion of universalism in international copyright law?

“Transnationalism is a pillar of Windsor Law’s institutional identity and is central to LTEC’s mission, and as such, we are very proud to have organized this series which brings together guest speakers from around the world,” says Windsor Law professor and LTEC chair Wissam Aoun.

These events are free and open to the public, but advance registration is required: http://lteclab.com/learning/speaker-series-2021/.
