Thinking Internationally about IP and Dispute Resolution: What Every Lawyer & Corporate Counsel Should Know

Presented by Center for Intellectual Property, Information & Privacy Law

WEBINAR Credit: CLE: 2 hours (pending) CLE credit is extended to Illinois attorneys only. Attorneys who need CLE from other states are welcome to apply to their jurisdictions on their own. The extension of CLE credit is subject to approval by each state.

  • Expert evidence and IP specialist mediators.
  • International IP organizations and government IP offices as drivers of dispute resolution innovators.
