Pakistan: CLDP Conducts IP Judicial Workshop

December 4, 2017 - December 8, 2017

On December 4-5, CLDP, in close cooperation with USPTO and the Continuing Legal Education Institute of Pakistan (CLEIP), held an intellectual property (IP) workshop in Karachi, Pakistan, for IP Tribunal Presiding Officers and select District and Session Court (D&S) judges identified as likely to be assigned to IP Tribunals in the near future (a total of 15 participants).  The workshop focused on enhancing the knowledge and analytical skills of the participants when applying IP law to cases before the IP Tribunals and D&S courts.  U.S. Federal District Court Judge David Carter and Lahore High Court Justice Farrukh Irfan Khan led numerous panel discussions with active participation by the Tribunal and D&S judges, supplemented by teaching sessions on copyright and trademark law. At the conclusion of the workshop, the participants gained 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. This program is integral to the U.S. - Pakistan Special 301 engagement matrix.
