IPLion: Congratulations to Jeremy Phillips

Congratulations to Professor Jeremy Phillips on his appointment as the first Dean of the newly formed Law Faculty of the University of Botswana. Law had previously been taught at the University to master’s level within the Faculty of Social Science.   The new Law Faculty will be the sixth Faculty of the University, 

One of Jeremy’s first responsibilities will be to give the keynote speech to the WIPO regional conference on traditional knowledge, genetic resources and traditional cultural expressions/folklore which is due to take place in Gabarone next month. This conference is sponsored jointly by the Department for International Development and and the UK Intellectual Property Office.   Commenting on his appointment, Dave Morgan of the UK IPO said 

“Jeremy is one of the few international academic lawyers with a genuine interest in Africa  as is evidenced by his participation in the afro-ip blog. We’re expecting great things from the conference and great things from Jeremy.”

Jeremy is already well known as editor of the IPkat blog. Educated at Cambridge and the University of Kent he is a consultant to Olswang’s and editor of the Journal of Intellectual Property Law and Practice.

Another British academic lawyer to teach at the University of Botswana was Professor Alexander McCall Smith. He was inspired to write the best selling “Number 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency” novels.   What tantalizing literary treats are we to expect from the pen of Rra Phillips I wonder.

About Jane Lambert

I am a barrister specializing in intellectual property, technology, media and entertainment and competition law. I specialize in helping SME (small and medium enterprises) protect and exploit their investment in brands, design, technology and the arts. SME require intellectual property (legal protection for their intellectual assets) at least as much as big business but their limited means restrict the way they can use it. Looking after such clients wisely requires skills and knowledge which have taken me years to learn.
