SICCL - Planting seeds for the future of intellectual property law Conference
The Sheffield Institute for Corporate and Commercial Law (SICCL) is hosting an Intellectual Property Law Conference in honour of Margaret Llewelyn.
Full event title: Planting seeds for the future of intellectual property law – A conference in honour of Margaret Llewelyn.
Event abstract: Professor Margaret Llewelyn was well known to the international Intellectual Property Law community as an authority on plant intellectual property. She completed her PhD in intellectual property law at Aberystwyth before pursuing an academic career at institutions across Europe, and was based at the University of Sheffield from 1994 until her retirement.
Professor Llewelyn published widely on intellectual property, with a particular focus on plant breeders’ rights, culminating in the monograph, (with Dr Mike Adcock), European Plant Intellectual Property. Other highlights of her career included an influential study on the European Commission’s ill-fated proposal for an EU Utility Model in 1996 and ground-breaking work on law and human genetics. As a leading expert in her field, she was an adviser to many governments and non-governmental organisations. Professor Llewelyn was editor of the Intellectual Property Quarterly from 2001 and remained editor until her death. Under her long editorship each issue demonstrated both topical diversity and intellectual excellence.
The IP community and the University of Sheffield Law School owe a debt of gratitude to Margaret’s scholarship, hard work and collegiality over many years. We hope that this academic conference and dinner exploring excellent IP scholarship will be a fitting tribute to her.
