An Evening of Design

Chicago-Kent’s Center for Design, Law & Technology (c∆) hosted an interdisciplinary conference, “An Evening of Design,” on October 11, 2018.

The conference, which was organized and co-sponsored by the Young Lawyers Committee of the Intellectual Property Law Association of Chicago (IPLAC) and Chicago-Kent’s Intellectual Property Law Society, featured TED talk-style presentations by a range of speakers from different disciplines: Rotimi Solola, an industrial designer; Joey Zeledón, design principal of Steelcase; Alisa Abbott, attorney from Banner & Witcoff; and Christopher Carani, shareholder of McAndrews, Held & Malloy.

The innovative conference culminated with a panel discussion on design and design protection with the entire group of speakers led by Professor Graeme Dinwoodie, c∆’s co-director and co-founder.
