IP and Tech Law Clinic - the official flyers

In my last post, I announced that QUT and QPILCH are establishing the Intellectual Property and Technology Law Clinic which will, among other things, provide free legal advice to members of the creative and technology sectors with limited financial resources.

With the assistance of the remarkable Elliott Bledsoe, we have designed two flyers advertising the inaugral advice sessions to be held on 29 October 2009 and 26 November 2009. You can download the flyers here and here [.pdf].

Please feel free to display and distribute these flyers far and wide.

IP and Technology Law Clinic

QUT Law Faculty and the Queensland Public Interest Law Clearing House (QPILCH) have received a small amount of funding to pilot an IP and Technology Law Clinic for 12 months. Part of this will be a clinical (elective) offering for QUT students in second semester 2010. Another part will be a free advisory service for Queenslanders needing IP and technology law advice who cannot otherwise afford a lawyer.

The Clinic will be led by Professor Brian Fitzgerald and me. If you are an IP lawyer in Brisbane who is interested in being involved in the advisory service, or a creator/user/Queenslander in need of some free legal advice, please contact me (Kylie) on (07) 3138 6836. We will be running two advice sessions in 2009 - Thursday 29 October and Thursday 26 November. Both sessions will be held in Brisbane City from 5:30pm-7:30pm. Advice is by appointment only and you must be able to attend in person.

Here is the flyer that we distributed at Big Sound last week. The flyer is geared towards musicians (because of the venue), but the advice service will also be relevant for other creators including writers, artists and designers. Tell your friends!
