Centre for Intellectual Property and Information Law
Faculty of Law, University of Cambridge
The Centre for Intellectual Property and Information Law was founded in 2004. Through its activities, CIPIL aims to promote the investigation, understanding and critical appraisal of these important fields of law.
The Centre, which replaced the IP Unit, brings together a group of legal academics already recognised for their historical and inter-disciplinary, as well as doctrinal, research. Drawing on the resources of Cambridge University, CIPIL is ideally positioned to carry out and promote well-informed interdisciplinary work. These aims are furthered through a variety of means: through rigorous academic research, the presence of high quality visiting researchers, Ph.D studentships, research fellowships, visitors and conferences.
