The Intellectual Property Law Chair of the Jagiellonian University in Kraków, one of Europe's oldest universities, is organising the first Kraków Intellectual Property Law Summer School, which will take place on September 11-16, 2017.

Students and young professionals will be offered the opportunity to broaden their skills and competences in IP law not only during lectures and workshops and but also during social activities and the moot court event at the end of the Summer School programme.

This year the programme is focused on the intriguing issues of IPR infringements, for instance the intricacies of infringement in the main regimes of IP protection, patent, trademark, copyright and design rights, indirect infringement (also regarding the current jurisprudence of the CJEU), the interface between IPR infringement and unfair competition and also includes an introduction to negotiation techniques.

An international approach is guaranteed by keynote speakers from the United Kingdom, Germany and New Zealand. All lectures and workshops will be conducted in English.
