Due to the continuing situation with COVID-19, the 21st Annual Intellectual Property Scholars Conference will be conducted online again.
Panels will be held on two consecutive Wednesdays and Thursdays, August 4-5, 11-12, 2021. Each day will run from 12:30 pm - 5:00 pm EDT, split into two sessions per day. There will be times and venues for virtual socializing before and after those session times.
Full-time academics and fellows who wish to attend must register in advance to receive Zoom links to the conference and password access to the papers. We will send more details on the conference schedule prior to the conference to those who have registered.
IPSC 2021 will accept presentation requests on all IP-related topics, including but not limited to Copyright, Trademark and Unfair Competition Law, Patent, Trade Secret, Cyberlaw, and Innovation Law Beyond IP.
The IP Scholars Conference brings together intellectual property scholars to present their works in progress in order to benefit from the critique of colleagues. The conference is co-sponsored by the Berkeley Center for Law and Technology, UC Berkeley School of Law; the Intellectual Property & Information Law Program, Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law at Yeshiva University; the Center for Intellectual Property Law and Information Technology, DePaul University College of Law; and the Stanford Program in Law, Science & Technology, Stanford Law School.
Any questions can be directed to our Program Administrator, Janette.email@example.com.

We welcome attendance by full-time academics who would like to participate in discussions but do not plan to present their own work. Requests to attend should be submitted here no later than May 28, 2021.
