Russell Kennedy's Government CPD Series for 2021 is held in a webinar format.
Our CPD Series is aimed at Government lawyers who are holders of Practising Certificates needing to obtain points in the compulsory CPD categories before 31st March 2021.

On Friday 12 February 2021, Russell Kennedy held our first session on Intellectual Property as a Public Asset.
Intellectual property is an increasingly important aspect of the day-to-day operations of government. Agencies regularly generate, acquire, license and use a variety of different types of IP. As with the private sector, government has an interest in maximising the value of these assets. However, government has additional obligations around transparency and accessibility consistent with the public interest.
During the session Russell Kennedy’s IP specialist, Gina Tresidder discussed Intellectual Property(IP), whether it be through funding research, publishing information or contracting with third parties.
Watch the webinar replay for:
- Victoria's official framework for the ownership and management of its IP, as set out in the whole of Victorian Government Intellectual Property Policy Intent and Principles;
- Different forms of IP under Australian law and how these can be protected;
- Additional IP rights specific to government; and
- Case studies illustrating some successes and failures of government to make the most of IP assets.
