Intellectual Property Colloquium
Pitt Law Professor Michael Madison, nationally known intellectual property scholar, will host the 2006 Works In Progress Intellectual Property Colloquium October 6 and 7 at the University of Pittsburgh School of Law. Leading intellectual property scholars from law schools around the country will gather at Pitt Law to present early-stage scholarship to other intellectual property faculty in order to get pre-publication feedback. Over 35 scholars are scheduled to present their scholarship.
The Colloquium, now in its fourth year, fosters open discussion of academic work in the field. Schools of Law at Tulane University, Boston University, and Washington University (with co-sponsorship by St. Louis University) have hosted the program in previous years.
This program is one of three national programs specifically designed for conversations about scholarship and ideas among intellectual property scholars. The other two programs are the Intellectual Property (IP) Scholars Roundtable held annually at Michigan State and the Intellectual Property Scholars Conference that rotates among Cardozo, De Paul, and Boalt Hall (with co-sponsorship by Stanford University) each August.
