NLUJ | Online Certificate Course on “Trademark Practice” [October 17-November 8, 2020]

The Centre for Intellectual Property Law, National Law University Jodhpur in the month of October is organizing an event. It is an online certificate course on “Trademark Practice” from October 17th to November 8, 2020.

SPEAKERS:

  1. Mr. Revanta Mathur, Partner, Anand and Anand
  2. Mr. Vibhav Mithal, Managing Associate, Anand and Anand

About the Certificate Course

As a lawyer, one is often required to advise clients on the various facets of trademark protection and protect their businesses by undertaking trademark registration. But it is found that the intricacies and complexities revolving around trademark filing, drafting, and other procedural aspects are not the primary focus of academic courses in law schools. Such courses are primarily designed to focus on the theory which leaves students requiring exposure to the practice of law.

Thus, Centre for Intellectual Property Law (CIPS) is pleased to announce the course which seeks to provide the participants with an understanding of practical knowledge. The Course shall be conducted over duration of fourteen hours, in which participants shall be able to acquire invaluable industry insight on when and how a trademark is filed, the importance of commercializing a trademark, protection in the age of the Internet, and the process for filing various notices.

Date and Time: October 17th– November 8th, 2020.

Contact Person:

Any queries may be directed to cips@nlujodhpur.ac.in or the following:
