An Introduction to Intellectual Property for Commercial Lawyers

Jane Lambert

These are the slides of a presentation that I gave to Manchester Trainee Solicitors Group at the Manchester Study Centre of BPP University on 29 April 2015. As I had been told that all the members of the audience would be law graduates but few (if any) would have any training or experience of intellectual property law I discussed the following topics:
  • Intellectual property and intellectual assets
  • International legal framework for IP
  • Institutions
  • Types of IP
  • Choosing the right kind of IP
  • Practical tips
  • Enforcement
  • Contracts relating to IP.
I circulated a handout to delegates which can be downloaded here.
