Colloquium on Selected Intellectual Property Issues 

Dear all,

The NLU Delhi Colloquium on Selected Intellectual Property Issues is a panel/ speakers’ series launched with an aim to generate a nuanced dialogue and to promote free-thinking on emerging issues in IP law, policy and theory. The current global & Indian IP landscape is presenting new challenges on an ever-increasing scale. Hence there is an urgent need to understand these challenges and discuss issues surrounding some of the trickiest aspects IP law, policy and practice, including their socio-economic implications. To these ends, NLU Delhi hosts legal scholars, practitioners and policy specialists from India and abroad to discuss and share new scholarship, views, ideas and experiences.

As part of the colloquium series, we are pleased to cordially invite you to attend a special lecture by Professor Shubha Ghosh, Vilas Research Fellow & Professor of Law, University of Wisconsin Law School, Madison, Wisconsin, United States. The lecture will be held on 25th March 2014 (Tuesday) at 11:00 am. Venue: # 202, Academic Block , NLU Delhi.

Prof. Ghosh will speak on “How the United States Supreme Court May Liberalize Global Patent Law” 

 This topic is very contemporary since the United State Supreme Court will shortly decide several patent cases which may fundamentally shift the current discourse around patent law and policy. These decisions are expected to have a shadow effect on patent law and policy across the globe.
