Berkeley-Tsinghua Transnational IP Litigation Program Launches Soon

Berkeley Law has just opened up registration for our third annual Berkeley-Tsinghua program on Transnational IP Litigation with Tsinghua Law School which will take place January 21, 22, 28 and 29. The agenda is here.  Registration is here.

The program will focus on IP litigation during a time of trade tension.  We will look at such issues as: the role of private IP litigation in the trade war and the Phase 1 Trade Agreement; the growth of SEP-related litigation  (including anti-suit injunctions); China’s efforts to become a center for international IP litigation and best practices in international IP litigation; emerging conflict of law issues; trade secret litigation in China and the US, (including Section 337); the changing landscape for IP protection for pharmaceutical products in China; and anti-counterfeiting liigation in the US against Chinese banks as payment processors. We have an international faculty of judges, lawyers, officials, practitioners, and academics.   From the federal bench, the program will include Judges Ray Chen, Kent Jordan, Randall Rader (ret.), Jeremy Fogel (ret.) and Andrew Guilford (ret.).

This year the program is free to academics, students, government officials and the media.  CLE is available for paid registrants.

Please consider joining us!

  1. If you can only choose one conference to keep you informed about the US-China IP interface, this is the conference! Tsinghua and Berkeley are probably the leading IP law schools in the PRC and USA. This conference, under the leadership of the top US-CHINA IP professors (Professor Mark Cohen and Professor Guobin Cui), promises to
    make news as well as report news.


  2. A very informative conference with different perspectives, with professionals from scholars, judges, attorneys, and in-house counsels. Both Tsinghua and Berkeley have done so much for the deep communication among different jurisdictions, and made great contribution for IP development worldwide.
