Works in Progress for Intellectual Property Scholars Colloquium

(WIPIP 2023)

February 3-4, 2023

The Suffolk Law IP Center is pleased to host the 20th Annual Works in Progress for Intellectual Property Scholars Colloquium (WIPIP 2023). The colloquium provides intellectual property scholars with a forum to present their academic works-in-progress and receive early feedback from their peers. Once again, WIPIP 2023 will host the famous “Evil Twins” debate, organized by Richmond Law School.

WIPIP 2023 will be a “hybrid” format with a mixture of virtual and on-site presenters and/or attendees (subject to any COVID-19 regulations required by Suffolk University and/or the city of Boston).

There is no cost to attend WIPIP, but conference attendees are responsible for their own travel costs. Suffolk Law School is located at 120 Tremont Street, Boston, MA 02108 and is a short taxi or train ride from Boston Logan International Airport (BOS).

Please check back periodically for more details regarding WIPIP 2023 as they become available in the coming weeks including how to submit a request to present at or attend the colloquium, the event schedule, lodging options, and more.

If you have any questions about WIPIP 2023, please contact the Suffolk Law IP Center.
