Intellectual Property Discussion Group



The Intellectual Property Discussion Group (IPDG) provides a forum to facilitate the exchange of ideas between students, faculty members and practitioners on topics relating to intellectual property law, although the group welcomes cross-disciplinary participation. It is primarily intended as a platform for research students to present their work, hold discussions and gain feedback in an informal environment; however, we welcome all students interested in intellectual property law to join us and learn with us.


An IPDG meeting typically features a 30-40 minute presentation followed by a discussion. The IPDG meets several times a term. Our term card for Hilary Term 2024 is available here: IPDG Hilary Term Card 2024.pdf. You can follow the IPDG on twitter: @OxIPDG. To subscribe to our mailing list, please send a blank email to
