ILS Law College’s Certificate Program in Advance Intellectual Property Rights: Register by Sept 20

About the ILS Law College

The early days of the Indian Law Society’s Law College date back as far as the year 1902, when Mr. J.R. Gharpure and Mr. P.B. Singhe decided to make a new beginning in the direction of a regularized system of imparting legal education. ‘The New Law Class, Bombay’ was therefore started in 1903. After running this class for five years, it was thought desirable to start a regular law college, which would be affiliated to a university. Accordingly, the Fergusson College Law Class was started in 1908, and was conducted by Mr. Gharpure. More than 125 students were registered on roll. However within a few weeks, this institution was disaffiliated from the University of Bombay. After a period of more than fifteen years the above experiment was still under trial. The scope for improvement was recognised and on 4th March, 1923, a new society called the ‘Indian Law Society’ was inaugurated, whose first President was Dr. Sir Narayan Rao C. Chandawarkar. It was proposed at this meeting that a private law college be set up in Pune. After preliminary preparations, the Law college formally commenced operation on the 20th of June 1924, under the banner of the Indian Law Society. It was then known as the ‘Poona Law College’. The Society acquired 154  acres of land and the first building called the Saraswati Building was built in 1935. The foundation stone was laid down at the hands of the Late Honourable Srinivas Shastri on 7th January 1935.

About the Program

After the completion of two successful editions of the Certificate Program on Intellectual Property Laws (IP Laws) we now propose to you our third edition of the same. This year’s program structure is designed with the aim to provide a comprehensive understanding of the various laws and contemporary issues related to intellectual property rights.

To give a brief overview of this area of law, anything generated by a person using their intellect and skill is called Intellectual Property.The rights given by the government to such persons over this property are termed as Intellectual Property Rights (IPR). It is a wide concept and includes intellectual activities in various fields such as industry, literature, science, and arts. Copyright, trademark, patent, geographical indications, performers’ rights, broadcasters’ rights are few such intellectual properties recognized in India. These properties are protected by law and any unauthorized reproduction and use of such properties without the permission of the intellectual property holder amounts to a serious offence.

Understanding, recognizing and respecting such rights is of utmost importance as while intellectual property forms a niche part of the law, it is fast emerging as an integral part of business and entrepreneurship. However, new advances in science, arts, and technology continuously outpace the development of law around intellectual property. The Certificate Program has been designed with the objective of not only giving a basic understanding of all forms of intellectual property to the participants, but also familiarizing them with the contemporary trends and current developments in the field.

Due to the pandemic and the current guidelines operative in the state of Maharashtra, the course will be conducted online via Google Meet. The links for meet will be intimated to the participants by email.
