Anton Mostert Chair of Intellectual Property: Intellectual Property Law

The Anton Mostert Chair of Intellectual Property at Stellenbosch University, in partnership with the Professional Development Project@Work at the University of Cape Town, is conducting a short course on Intellectual Property Law from 25-27 July 2012 in Cape Town.

A sound understanding of Intellectual Property Law is imperative to succeed in any competitive environment and increasingly relevant to non-legal practitioners. This course will offer a theoretical and practice-driven introduction to the law of patents, trade marks, copyright and designs. It will equip attendees with the skills required to identify, protect and promote the benefits of intellectual property (IP) and demystify IP law to legal and non-legal professionals.

The course is aimed at everyone with an interest in IP regardless of prior knowledge of IP or law. It is particularly relevant to those in business, marketing, advertising, journalism, science, engineering, commerce, arts, information technology and paralegal services.


Facilitated by Prof Owen Dean, incumbent of the Anton Mostert Chair of Intellectual Property at Stellenbosch, and author of the Handbook of South African Copyright and consultant to Spoor & Fisher, and Lee-Ann Tong, senior lecturer of Intellectual Property Law at University of Cape Town. Presented by a panel of leading academics and specialist IP practitioners.
