The American University Washington College of Law (AUWCL) Program on Information Justice and Intellectual Property (PIJIP) is pleased to announce the fifth convening of the Global Congress on Intellectual Property and the Public Interest. The Congress will take place the week of September 24, 2018.
In particular, we are calling for proposals for a session on Friday, September 28, 2018, in which we will pair a scholar who has a law reform proposal with a panel of advocates who will provide responses and discussion. Law reform proposals can be from prior work and can be domestic or international in scope. This could be all or part of an already published article or a new work. We would like to (re)publish submitted papers in the PIJIP Working Paper Series.
Presentation times are limited to 15 minutes with 5 minutes reserved for questions from a panel of advocates in the field. Discussion drafts are due on September 21, 2018, and finalized papers are due on February 15, 2019. Those who plan to submit full-length law review articles can have them considered for publication in sponsoring journals (including American University Law Review, American University International Law Review, and The IP Brief).
Call for Proposals/Papers Deadline: May 15, 2018.
