Ogilvy Renault LLP is proud to partner with Osgoode Hall Law School's newest initiative, IP Osgoode, an independent and authoritative voice on intellectual property issues. The program aims to educate and prepare the next generation of lawyers to compete and succeed in a knowledge-based society.

"IP Osgoode will promote a productive discussion of the key players in IP in Canada. And it reflects our firm's history of supporting the sector in Canada," says Jane Caskey, partner at Ogilvy Renault and member of IP Osgoode's Advisory Board. "We are thrilled to work with Osgoode Hall and share their goals in this innovative project."

Osgoode Hall is partnering with five leading law firms, including Ogilvy Renault, and industry leaders Audio-Video Licensing Agency Inc. and Copyright Collective of Canada/Société de perception de droit d'auteur du Canada.

Academic courses on topics such as copyright, digital copyright, trademarks, international intellectual property and intellectual property theory will be offered through IP Osgode. As well, special features will include a new website (http://www.iposgoode.ca/); an online blog (www.iposgoode.ca/ipilogue), with high-profile guest bloggers, student editors and daily postings; and a series of special events and presentations by internationally respected IP experts.

Ogilvy Renault's Intellectual Property Group is one of our four main practice areas of law. It is one of the largest groups in Canada with over 90 lawyers, patent and trade-mark agents, and technical consultants. Each has expertise in various engineering and scientific disciplines.
