The Institute of Brand and Innovation Law at University College, London is hosting an annual lecture, on the tantalizing subject “Mr Justice Laddie and his intellectual property cases: Of millefeuilles and a fish called Elvis“. The free lecture will begin at Wednesday 22 June 2022 at 6pm BST and is being live-streamed (as well as in-person).
“Sir Hugh Laddie has contributed enormously to the development of intellectual property law in the UK and beyond, through the books he co-authored, his extrajudicial lectures and writings, his conference appearances, and of course the cases which he judged and appeared in. While Sir Hugh’s books and writings are easily accessible, the corpus of his case law is less so, being scattered over more than three decades of law reports since the 1970s. This lecture considers a selection of Sir Hugh’s cases, some familiar to IP aficionados, some perhaps less so, to assess the continuing impact of his work at the bar and bench in the field to which he devoted himself.”
