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!
