The Berkeley Center for Law & Technology is pleased to host the 24th Annual Intellectual Property Scholars Conference (IPSC) on August 8-9, 2024 at the Residence Inn in Berkeley, CA.

The IPSC brings together intellectual property scholars to present their works-in-progress in order to benefit from the critique of colleagues. The conference is co-sponsored by the Berkeley Center for Law and Technology, UC Berkeley School of Law; the Center for Intellectual Property Law and Information Technology, DePaul University College of Law; the Stanford Program in Law, Science & Technology, Stanford Law School; and the Intellectual Property and Information Law Program, Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law at Yeshiva University.

The IPSC format is designed to facilitate free-ranging discussion and to help scholars hone their ideas. Papers presented are work-in-progress that can benefit from substantial commentary and revision. 

Because of the importance of group discussion, attendees and presenters are asked to plan to stay for the entire conference.
