This is considered our signature intellectual property program for a reason—it delivers "in one go" all the latest developments in patents, trade-marks, and copyright. Our presenters make sure you have the vital information you need, with invaluable insights into patentability and prosecution trends. Also, learn how the Supreme Court's recent decision to strike down the "promise doctrine" will influence your patent practice, and how you can appropriately advise clients on this seminal case's effect on their patents and patent challenges.

  • Understand why the promise doctrine was struck down
  • Learn about the effect of a key Supreme Court case on Canadian patent litigation and prosecution
  • Gain a better understanding of conflicts and ethical obligations in IP licensing
  • Raise your awareness of patent and trade-mark prosecution trends
