The School of Law and the International Commercial and Economic Law Research Group is pleased to announce the establishment of an IP Law Café. Designed for practitioners, business people, academics and anyone who has to deal with IP issues on a daily basis or is  just plain curious about the role Intellectual Property plays in the modern commercial world, the Café is a series of afternoon engagements focussed around a specific topic with input from a recognised expert in the field. It is then followed by lively discussion among all the participants providing for networking, peer learning and development in the crucial area of Intellectual Property. All IP Café events start at 4pm and take place in the Millstream Common Room on the UL Campus. Attendance is free and refreshments and finger-foods will be served.
