IP law scholars exchange ideas during national workshop at UH Law Center


University of Houston Law Center Associate Dean Greg Vetter addresses audience members before a presentation at the Works-in-Progress Intellectual Property Colloqium.

March 7, 2019 - More than 70 intellectual property law professors from across the world shared their latest scholarship at the 2019 Works-in-Progress Intellectual Property Colloquium (WIPIP), hosted by the University of Houston Law Center's Institute for Intellectual Property & Information Law.

Presentations included a variety of topics including patents, trademarks, copyright and more. The two-day event offered an opportunity for intellectual property law scholars to present their works-in-progress and receive early and in-person feedback from their colleagues.

The event was organized by Law Center IPIL faculty members Dave Fagundes, Paul Janicke, Craig Joyce, Sapna Kumar, Andrew Michaels and Associate Dean Greg R. Vetter. Hosted at a different law school each year, 2019 is the second time the Law Center has hosted WIPIP. The Law Center also supports WIPIP by hosting its history page at

“We are grateful to have hosted WIPIP in 2019 and in 2012,” Vetter said. “We love to show the community of IP scholars the wonderful aspects of Houston and our Texas hospitality while promoting the advancement of thinking about IP.”
