About the Institute of Brand & Innovation Law and our staff The Institute of Brand and Innovation Law at UCL Laws provides a unique forum for academics, the judiciary, policy-makers, the professions and users of the IP system to come together and exchange ideas on cutting-edge IP issues. Professor Sir Hugh Laddie QC founded the UCL Institute of Brand and Innovation Law when he joined UCL in 2007. Inspired by Sir Hugh’s vision, IBIL has become a centre of excellence for intellectual property, inspiring students of all levels and raising awareness of IP issues across UCL and beyond. IBIL has organised a series of keynote IP seminars, attracting speakers from around the world, including Lord Hoffmann, Lord Justice Jackson, Mr Justice Kitchin, Mr Justice Arnold, Judge Rader, Professor Jan Brinkhof, Professor J Thomas McCarthy, counsel from Amazon, AstraZeneca, Bristol Myers Squibb, GlaxoSmithKline, Google and Procter & Gamble, as well as senior representatives from the European Commission, the Intellectual Property Office and the Office of Fair Trading. Our audiences have exceeded 350 people per event from all sectors of the IP community. UCL has recently appointed the Rt Hon Sir Robin Jacob (Lord Justice Jacob) as the first holder of Sir Hugh Laddie Chair at UCL Laws, and Director of the Institute of Brand and Innovation Law. As holder of this Chair, Sir Robin will carry on the legacy and the outstanding vision of Sir Hugh Laddie and will foster the strength of UCL in London as a centre for intellectual property practice and scholarship. He will help to shape a multi-disciplinary research agenda on intellectual property, within UCL and more broadly worldwide, and will lead IBIL’s young, dynamic IP team.
