On April 5th, Professor Christine Farley will be speaking at the annual American Bar Association Intellectual Property Law Spring Meeting.

Professor Farley will discuss how firms can prepare themselves and their clients to brand products and protect trademarks in Cuba. This program will cover the trade and Commerce American Businesses can currently pursue in Cuba; how to navigate the applicable American and Cuban statutes, regulations, and administrative bureaucracy when currently registering and protecting trademarks; issues U.S. Applicants for trademark registration are currently facing in Cuba; and issues former registrants and the owners of well-known trademarks without registrations are currently facing in Cuba.

Three WCL IP students have also been chosen to be Law Student Reporters at the conference. Fadia Galindo, Katherine Bravo and Justin Wickersham will be covering multiple CLE panels throughout the conference, including the “Trademarks: Get Ready for Cuba” discussion.

Congratulations to Professor Farley and our students!
