CARIFORUM IP Mediation Workshop
On 29-30 March 2023, CarIPI, WIPO and the CCJ Academy for Law will host a workshop on alternative dispute resolution (ADR) and IP mediation. The online session will raise awareness of the judiciary and legal professionals on matters related to IP mediation from global and regional perspectives.
This workshop builds on CarIPI’s webinar ‘Trade marks and geographical indications: synergies, conflicts & case-law analysis’, for regional judicial and legal professionals. Its purpose was to support them in making court proceedings more efficient.
The IP Mediation Workshop aims to enhance the capacity of CARIFORUM judges and legal professionals in the specialised area of ADR and mediation for IP-related disputes, as well as to provide an opportunity for the exchange of best practices. It will also be a good opportunity for collaboration with the WIPO Mediation and Arbitration Centre and the related centre in Trinidad and Tobago.
This workshop is part of CarIPI’s Annual Work Plan 4, Activity 10: CARIFORUM IP Case Law Conference & ADR systems.
