Understanding China’s New Environment for Intellectual Property

After months of planning and preparation, Fordham’s first China focused IP Conference is only two short days away! Registration has been climbing in the last few days, and it is still open.

With the range of issues covered and many notable featured speakers from the U.S. and Chinese government and judiciary, academia and practitioners, the program promises to be exciting. As April 11th approaches, the speaker biographies and their papers have been posted online as well.

We look forward to learning about these issues from the distinguished panel and their varied perspectives.
