Global Collaborations

Global IP Database Project

CASRIP worked with Waseda RCLIP and has developed the Indian IP Case Law Database. The database is available to the public. RCLIP’s database also includes IP Case Law Database on major Asian countries including China, Korea and ASEAN countries. CASRIP also worked with IIP in the first phase to develop the Japanese Case Law Database.

CASRIP also has been working with the UAIPIT at the University of Alicante, which has also developed the IP Law database including information on IP legislations and case law. Through these collaborations, CASRIP makes global IP information available to the public free of charge.

IP Work-in-Progress Colloquium for Chinese Scholars

University of Washington School of Law will host the First IP Work-in-Progress Colloquium for Chinese scholars on May 7-8, 2015 in Seattle. "Work-in-progress" events involve pairing the author of a draft paper with a commentator with appropriate subject matter expertise. All participants are expected to present a draft work and to provide feedback on the draft work of another participant. The goal of the Colloquium is to provide a training exercise for participants for the process of academic writing--from reviewing paper proposals to giving comments to drafts from our experienced faculty members.

The committee members will choose the most promising 10-15 proposals and invite their authors to submit full‐fledged draft papers. These scholars will attend the IP Work-in-Progress Colloquium in Seattle and present their papers to senior scholars from the U.S., Asia, and Europe to receive their feedback. UW School of Law will also offer research and writing clinics for invited authors regarding how to write U.S. style law review articles and submit them to U.S. journals.

Starting from October 25, 2014, all paper proposals should be submitted to the following email address: .

Deadline for the submission is extended to February 15, 2015.
