Professor Anselm Kamperman Sanders of the Maastricht University, the Netherlands, informed me about The International Intellectual Property Law and Pharmaceuticals conference organised by Dr. Christopher Heath, Member of the Boards of Appeal at the European Patent Office (EPO) and himself. It will be the 8th Annual IP Seminar to be organised at the Instituto de Estudos Europeus de Macau (IEEM) from June 25 through 26 2007.
The agenda of the full programme is:
4th IEEM IP Law School June, 18-22 2007;
8th IEEM IP Seminar June, 25-26, 2007;
4th IEEM IP Master classes June, 27-29, 2007.
About this programme:
"Classes are offered in an intensive Socratic format in the course of one week by experts in the field Dr. Christopher Heath, of the Boards of Appeal of the European Patent Office, Prof. Anselm Kamperman Sanders, of Maastricht University, and local guest speakers who offer a Chinese perspective on Intellectual Property Law.
"This challenging programme also expects students to jointly prepare and argue several moot cases in a friendly, yet competitive atmosphere, providing a unique insight in the way in which participants from various jurisdictions approach international and domestic legal problems.
The IP Law School offers an excellent opportunity to prepare or refresh one’s knowledge before the 8th Annual IP Seminar and the subsequent IP Master Classes.
"IP Master Classes offer the opportunity to learn from an expert in a particular sub-discipline of Intellectual Property Law. Whereas the IP Master Classes follow the same Socratic format of the IP Law School, including the opportunity to argue mock trials, they are much more topical and are taught jointly by the regular IP Law School team and other expert speakers from the IP Seminar. This means that IP Master Classes form a seamless companion programme to the annual Intellectual Property Seminar."
