Rob Sterne, director of Sterne Kessler, will be teaching a session, IP Valuation and Management, to a group of 75 international students and young professionals on June 18, from 10:30-11:30am. Participants will include both undergraduate and law students, as well as professionals working in a wide variety of fields.

The WIPO Summer School on IP is an annual summer course taught in countries throughout the world, and the Center for the Protection of Intellectual Property (CPIP) at George Mason University will be co-hosting the U.S. version of this program this year. Through this program, CPIP seeks to emphasize the nature and value of patents and other IP rights as commercial assets that drive economic growth and contribute to a flourishing society.
