Michigan State Law Hosts Conference on Innovation and Communications Law

The Intellectual Property, Information, and Communications Law Program (IPIC) at Michigan State University College of Law hosted the Fifth Annual Conference on Innovation and Communications Law (CICL) from May 14 through 16, 2013. The event was held at the Homestead resort in Glen Arbor, Michigan, overlooking Lake Michigan and the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore.

CICL Conference

This year’s CICL theme, “Intellectual Property, the Internet, and Computational Transformation,” highlighted ways in which the ever-increasing power of computation drives changes in intellectual property rights doctrines and the domestic and international practice of law. The conference drew an impressive roster of presenters, including Judges David McKeague of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit and Gordon Quist of the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Michigan; leaders in the growing field of legal analytics, such as Owen Byrd of Lex Machina and Greg Upchurch of Legalmetric; and academics from across the United States. Other speakers and attendees included practitioners from the firms of Avanti Law Group; Bolhouse, Baar & Lefere; Honigman Miller Schwartz and Cohn; Howard & Howard; Kirkland & Ellis; Miller Canfield; Price Heneveld; Rader, Fishman & Grauer; Traverse Legal; and Revision Legal.

The event was a cooperative effort of Michigan State Law, the University of Louisville Louis D. Brandeis School of Law, Åbo Akademi University, the University of Turku Faculty of Law, and Drake University Law School.
