Forums & Seminars Committee

  • Kavita Ramamoorthy, Chair, Fineberg Ramamoorthy LLP (Toronto)
  • Marion M. Bailey-Canham, Vice-Chair, Gowling WLG (Canada) LLP (Ottawa)

The mandate of this committee is to prepare the educational program of the Annual Meeting. The committee develops educational programs of a broader nature than those focused on developing skills at the early phases of entry into the intellectual property area. These programs may provide information, for example, on emerging areas of practice, practice management advice, training at the paralegal level, training in specialized software, and training at the more advanced levels of intellectual property practice. The Committee also prepares general interest seminars for businesses, general lawyers, and interested members and the public on patent, trademark, copyright and industrial design matters.
