Chicago-Kent College of Law and Loyola University Chicago School of Law (where I previously served as an Adjunct Professor of Legal Writing) are jointly sponsoring and hosting the Chicago Intellectual Property Colloquium. The Colloquium brings six nationally renowned IP scholars to Chicago to discuss their current IP research. The presentations look very interesting. They start January 30th and run through April on Tuesday afternoons (schedule after the jump). Each lasts just under two hours and they rotate between Kent and Loyola.
Attendance is by invitation only. If you would like an invitation, contact Patricia O’Neal at Kent — firstname.lastname@example.org. I will be attending as many as I can and blogging about them afterward. If you see me, please say "hello."
