The Technology and Intellectual Property (TIP) Group at U of T Law is a student-run group focused on the law and intellectual property, biotechnology, information technology, and other related fields.
Each year, the TIP Group organises a variety of events that allow students to learn about all aspects of practising in these fields, including legal, regulatory, policy, commercial, and other considerations. These events include: seminars with lawyers who speak about their practice areas and new developments in technology and intellectual property law; tours of law firms that specialize in intellectual property law; and a multi-day annual conference, which attracts lawyers, industry professionals, and academics. Past conference topics have included the self-driving car, the human genome, censorship and privacy, and compulsory licensing in the pharmaceutical industry.
All students are welcome to join and participate in TIP Group activities!
