Given the evolving situation with COVID-19, and in the interest of our community’s safety, we have decided not to hold the 20th Annual Intellectual Property Scholars Conference in person this year.  In lieu of the live conference, we will be moving IPSC 2020 online for a set of virtual panels to be hosted throughout July and August.

The IP Scholars Conference brings together intellectual property scholars to present their works-in-progress in order to benefit from the critique of colleagues. The conference is co-sponsored by the Berkeley Center for Law and Technology, UC Berkeley School of Law; the Intellectual Property Law Program, Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law at Yeshiva University; the Center for Intellectual Property Law and Information Technology, DePaul University College of Law; and the Stanford Program in Law, Science & Technology, Stanford Law School.

IPSC 2020 will accept presentation requests on all IP-related topics, including but not limited to Copyright, Trademark and Unfair Competition Law, Patent, Trade Secret, Cyberlaw, and Innovation Law Beyond IP.

The IPSC format is designed to facilitate free-ranging discussion and to help scholars hone their ideas. Papers presented are works in progress that can benefit from substantial commentary and revision.
