*Dear all,*

The Ministry of HRD Chair on IPR at National Law University, Jodhpur- India
is organising a *Round-table Symposium on ‘The Emerging Legal and Policy
Landscape of Intellectual Property Protection for Pharmaceuticals in India’
on  **17th and 18th March, 2012**. The event is cosponsored by University
Grants Commission (UGC), New Delhi.*

*The event is expected to bring academicians, legal experts and policy
specialists from across India working on IP law and pharmaceutical policy
issues. The aim of the roundtable symposium is to generate a nuanced
dialogue on many critical issues concerning intellectual property
protection for pharmaceutical inventions in India in the light of the
emerging scenario in the Post- TRIPS world. *

*Fifteen years have passed by since India adhered to certain
internationally binding IP obligations through the WTO-TRIPS agreement. And
yet, India is garnering worldwide interest concerning the level of
protection provided by its IP laws. The administrative and the judicial
thought process on how best to balance competing interests cannot be
divorced from this context.*

*Indeed, much of IP law in its application to the pharmaceutical sector
cannot be looked in isolation from the intricate policy issues and general
societal interest. *

*While a lot of attention is focused on the pros and cons of IP regimes,
there yet remains an enormous task of calibrating the IP regimes that could
best serve the needs of balancing competing interests. By bringing together
some of the prominent experts in this area, the symposium will provide a
good forum to exchange valuable information, ideas and experiences in
articulating legal and policy issues on IP protection for pharmaceuticals
in India. *

*The agenda of the symposium can be found
