Intellectual Property and Entertainment Law Committee (Lead)
Diversity and Equality Law Committee


DiversityInclusionWomen's equality in various fields and sectors, such as workplaces, marketplaces and the community should be the normality. Relevant presence and influence of women in the Law should not be the exception. It seems that there is a profuse presence of women in IP, mainly in the trademark law, also it appears that this is not the case in the patent law. However, legal departments in the pharma industry seems to be managed mainly by women, at least, in some jurisdictions. The panel would discuss from various perspectives the truthfulness of some of the main taboos of women ascendancy in the IP Law.
