Alumni and tutors of the Oxford Postgraduate Diploma in Intellectual Property Law and Practice gathered at the Royal Society on 3 May 2017 for the annual alumni drinks reception. The Faculty and the Oxford Intellectual Property Research Centre are grateful to HHJ Richard Hacon who talked to the group on the role and workings of the Intellectual Property Enterprise Court (IPEC). The Postgraduate Diploma in Intellectual Property Law and Practice is taught jointly by senior Oxford academics and senior practitioners from leading law firms and chambers. It provides a top quality vocational experience for newly qualified solicitors and barristers embarking on a career in intellectual property law.
