The Geneva IP and Digital Law Alumni & Career Forum is a joint session which is part of both our 2024 WIPO-University of Geneva Intellectual Property Summer School (IPSS) and our Digital Law Summer School (DLSS). The goal of the Forum is to bring together (both in person and virtually) our global community of alumni and to connect it with the 2024 Summer School participants so that students can learn and interact with our alumni.


Distinguished speakers who are all alumni of our Summer Schools will talk about their career path since their participation in our Summer School and discuss how their Summer School has contributed to their professional development and to their activities. They will also present their current IP and Digital Law activities, their insights on substantive IP and Digital Law issues and future challenges.
