Love performers' rights + early career lawyer/researcher? Here's some fun and a competition for you

A couple of months ago this blog reported that the new (5th) edition of Performers' Rights by The Hon Mr Justice Arnold has finally become available.

Via 1709 Blog friend Hasan Kadir Yilmaztekin (University of Exeter) comes the news that the recently created New IP Lawyers network [see here] is now organising what looks like a great event.

On 18 April 2016 in London there will be an evening of discussion on - indeed - performers' rights with a keynote address by The Hon Mr Justice Arnold himself.

This, however, is not all.

PhD students, early career researchers and young lawyers are in fact invited to submit a short paper on any area related to performers’ rights. 

Papers should be no more than 1,500 words and be submitted to (alongside a short bio) before 18th March 2016.
The New IP Lawyers Executive Committee will select the three best papers, the authors of which will be invited to present at the Performers’ Rights Seminar. 

The presentations should be no longer than 15 minutes. 

Mr Justice Arnold has agreed to provide feedback to the presenters and select a final winner. 

The papers will also be published on the New IP Lawyer’s IPOwl Blog
