Pakistan: CLDP conducts IP Judicial Workshop Phase III

From December 3-7, 2018, CLDP, in partnership with USPTO and the Continuing Legal Education Institute of Pakistan (CLEIP), conducted a week-long workshop on intellectual property (IP) for Pakistan judges and a Director of the Intellectual Property Organization of Pakistan (IPO).  This workshop was the capstone training session in a series of progressively more difficult programs for IP Tribunal Presiding Officers and District & Sessions judges selected by the High Courts as likely to be appointed to IP Tribunals in the near future. The judges interacted with U.S. (e.g., USPTO, DOJ, judges, private lawyers) and Pakistani (e.g., private legal practitioners) experts in trademark, copyright, trade secret, and patent law, including civil and criminal prosecution and deterrent sentencing.  The workshop was a mix of subject matter lectures, case studies, and a visit to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit.  In addition, representatives of U.S. industry and an economist met with the judges to discuss the benefits and challenges of enforcing intellectual property rights locally, nationally, regionally, and worldwide.  This series of workshops builds on earlier CLDP, USPTO, CLEIP, and IPO programs focusing on IP rights in Pakistan.
