The OIPRC is the focus of intellectual property research
at the university, not just in area of law but in other fields including economics and public policy. The centre organises a termly intellectual property seminar series
and the annual International Intellectual Property Moot
. The centre also hosts a number of academic visitors and research students
annually. Members of the Centre have developed enduring and collaborative relationships with leading intellectual property practitioners through the Postgraduate Diploma in Intellectual Property Law and Practice
and now with the new Msc in Intellectual Property
. The Diploma is a part-time vocational programme offered by the Law Faculty in collaboration between the University and the Intellectual Property Lawyer’s Association.
The OIPRC was established in 1990 at St Peter's College by Faculty member Peter Hayward, with an initial gift from the Hitachi Foundation and moved from St Peter’s College to the Faculty of Law in 2008.
