IPilogue Team

IPilogue (www.iposgoode.ca) is the first online review of its kind, featuring thoughtful intellectual property and technology law commentary by its students as well as scholars and other experts from around the world. As an interdisciplinary forum, we explore issues ranging from biotechnology to telecommunications, media to privacy, antitrust to tort, and beyond.

Based at Osgoode Hall Law School, IPilogue seeks to promote evidence-based dialogue featuring a multitude of perspectives.  Students from other law schools are welcome to contribute to IPilogue. We also welcome interdisciplinary contributions from professionals and scholars in various disciplines outside of law.
