International Education Subcommittee

The International Education Subcommittee aims to foster education and greater understanding of IP in the chemical arts in jurisdictions outside the USA. We will keep members up-to-date with the latest developments in international law, especially relating to chemical inventions and we will interact with members through regular newsletter articles and email updates, as well as sessions at the AIPLA meetings throughout the year. In 2018 we hope to expand our efforts, with contributions from more jurisdictions. If you are interested in getting involved, we would greatly appreciate your input. Please contact the subcommittee chair using the details given below.

2016 AIPLA Annual Meeting
Panel Discussion: "Now is the Time! Align Your Strategies for International Patent Application Filings"

AIPLA Chemical Practice Committee, along with the Education, Law Students and Patent Agents Committees, hosted a panel of seasoned practitioners who offered recommendations and practice tips for preparing patent application to be filed in multiple jurisdictions in the chemical and related arts. The panel featured panelists from from Canada, China, Europe, India and Japan and proposed considerations for attaining patentable subject matter, written description, and enablement in light of country laws and rules of procedure. The panel also discussed patent harmonization efforts.
