Pakistan: CLDP Conducts IP Judicial Workshop II

September 26, 2018 - September 27, 2018

On September 25-27, in Karachi Pakistan, CLDP, in close cooperation with USPTO and the Continuing Legal Education Institute of Pakistan (CLEIP), conducted an intellectual property (IP) workshop in Karachi, Pakistan, for IP Tribunal Presiding Officers and select District and Session Court (D&S) judges.

This workshop was the second in a series of three workshops focusing on enhancing the knowledge and analytical skills of the participants when applying Pakistan IP law to cases before the IP Tribunals and D&S courts.  Local Pakistani legal experts, both practitioners and judges, lead the panel discussions with active participation by the Tribunal and D&S judges, supplemented by teaching sessions on copyright and trademark jurisprudence in Pakistan.  At the conclusion of the workshop, the participants have had an increased understanding of the legal and economic underpinning IP law and global best practices which will enhance the tribunal/court's effectiveness in adjudicating civil and criminal claims to protect IP rights holders from the unauthorized use of IP and the resulting damages to individuals, the economy, and society as a whole.
