*Seton Hall Law School and the Graduate Institute of International and
Development Studies Announce an  Executive Course in Intellectual Property
and Global Public Health in Geneva, Switzerland:*

* Intellectual property issues have come to play an increasingly important
role in discussions of national and global health problems. Yet,
individuals whose primary expertise is health or diplomacy may find these
discussions inaccessible because they lack a sufficient understanding of
basic intellectual property concepts and their relationship to global
public health. To fill this gap, Seton Hall Law School and the Graduate
Institute of International and Development Studies in Geneva have joined
together to offer an executive course on health-related aspects of
intellectual property from a global public health perspective. A key goal
of the course will be to develop concrete tools for implementing the World
Health Organization’s Global Strategy and Plan of Action on Public Health,
Innovation, and Intellectual Property.  Course faculty will include key
representatives from the World Health Organization, the World Trade
Organization, the World Intellectual Property Organization, academia,
industry, and nongovernmental organizations.  The course will be held on
the Graduate Institute's campus in Geneva, Switzerland on February 15-17,
2012. *
