  2. Empirical research in intellectual property – This theme will deliberate on how IP law and policy can be informed by empirical research and how law teachers and researchers can contribute to such research.
  3. IP clinics- It focuses on contribution by the academia to law and policy – focus on how law teachers can actively contribute to IP law and policy by working with the government, interventions in judicial matters and by engaging with the civil society.
  4. Teaching IP beyond law schools:  Experiences from technical, humanities and management schools – to include IP teachers in non-law institutes and their experiences- discuss how law school teachers can contribute and mutually benefit.
