Have you heard about CIPO's IP Case Studies? Teaching tools that demonstrate the strategic value of IP to college and university students, the case studies are designed to reflect realistic career situations for students, particularly those studying engineering, science and business. Using a 50 to 90 minute in-class discussion format, each case study can be easily integrated into an existing course.  Click here for more info.

Contact the ILO to book a case study for your class, or if you are interested in attending a half-day training session to become a case study facilitator.
