The Judicial Symposium on Intellectual Property will be held again this year, where legal professionals and government officials from various countries will conduct mock trials and discussions on judicial decisions on international IP disputes and recent IP topics.
 This symposium, which started in 2017, has been a groundbreaking event that provides the latest information on Japan's IP judicial system as well as the systems of foreign countries, and has received a great response through the past four events.
 This year’s symposium, marking its fifth year anniversary, will provide a fulfilling program about the latest discussions and issues on IP dispute resolution in Asia. (It will be held in a web conference format this year due to the spread of COVID-19.)
