IP Law and Judicial Enforcement in an International Perspective, Università Roma Tre, Facoltà di Giurisprudenza

The seminar is aimed at focusing the current system of international rules on IP law and their impact on national and regional systems. The seminar is addressed to academic scholars, Ph.D. candidates, and students of the International Law course.
The first session will be devoted to the role of international IP rules, introduced within the framework of the WTO, in eliminating trade obstacles, and whether they can be considered adequate to face the challenges posed by scientific and technological progress, taking into account market, social and economic priorities, also at a regional and national level.
The second session will deal with the enactment of TRIPS rules within the European Union and its Member States, and the consistency of the EU framework. In particular the issue will be seen through the lenses of judicial experience, and of the relevant case-law of the European Court of Justice and of national courts.

Registration and attendance to the Seminar are free and open to the public.
