IP Law Post is started by a group of HNLU students with a keen interest in Intellectual Property Law. By means of this blog, they aim to facilitate dialogue on recent domestic and international developments.
With the tremendous growth in technology, art and industry, IP has touched many facets of our lives such as business, innovation, sports, fashion, media & entertainment and pharmaceuticals. The IP Law Post is an endeavour to create an inclusive and open space that bridges the gap between students, researchers, academicians and professionals.
