About IP and Other Things

The Rt Hon Professor Sir Robin Jacob has been variously a leading member of the Intellectual Property Bar, a High Court judge and, as Lord Justice Jacob, a judge in the Court of Appeal of England and Wales. His primary area of expertise is intellectual property (IP) rights. He chose to leave the Court of Appeal in March 2011 to take up his current position as the Sir Hugh Laddie Chair in intellectual property at University College London. Besides teaching and writing he still sits occasionally in the Court of Appeal, sits as an arbitrator, provides expert evidence, chairs the Advisory Committee on the Appointment and Training of the Judges of the Unified Patent Court and often advises the UK Government and EU Commission on IP matters. These essays and speeches, selected from his published and unpublished writings and lectures, illustrate the breadth of his learning in IP and other matters. They are written in typically straightforward and entertaining style and, in the case of the older essays, include a commentary of what has happened since they were first published. They will be of interest to any lawyer, law student or scholar interested in the development of IP law in the past quarter century or so.

Reviews

“This is a jolly good book. Read it, learn from it and enjoy it.” –  David Perkins, European Intellectual Property Law Review

“Sir Robin is a story teller and IP and Other Things is a story not just of his life in IP, but of his life...No matter what your IP speciality, there is something in there for everyone...” –  IPKat

“This is not a typical book about intellectual property (...). The collection emphasizes procedural questions and interests frequently faced by those in practice. This book might serves as a good place to start assessing the rise of the 'Intellectual Property Bar' in the late twentieth-century.” –  Jose Bellido, University of Kent, Legal Studies, Vol 37
