With the rise in the number of technology and intellectual property (IP) transactions has come an increased number of disputes. Although an IP dispute can be brought before a court, litigation is not always well-suited to the task. In the context of IP, alternative dispute resolution (ADR) procedures (such as mediation and arbitration) can be particularly advantageous, especially for IP-related contractual disputes involving parties from different jurisdictions. The session will include a mock mediation between a university and a business, followed by a presentation on the essential features of mediation and ADR pros and cons compared with court litigation.
