ABPI Journal 30 years commemorative edition – interview with Editor Laetitia d’Hanens

The November/December edition of the ABPI Journal will be published later this month as a special edition celebrating its 30 years of existence. A major reference on Intellectual Property in Brazil, bringing academic consistency to scholars in the area and a source of consultation by the courts, the journal successfully consolidates its maturity.

The celebration edition has two dimensions: initially, it makes a foray into the past, with a historical account of former Editors on challenges of the journal over the decades, to then point to the future, with the reflections of each of ABPI’s Study Committees on issues that challenge the horizon of Intellectual Property, in their respective areas.

With this proposal, the journal will be open for everyone to read on the Association’s website. “The purpose of this special edition is not only to pay homage to the Journal’s history but also present ABPI’s Study Committees as a great showcase of the topics studied and their perspectives for the future,” explains Editor Laetitia d’Hanens. Furthermore, for this purpose, the editorial content brings considerations about the future of alternative means of dispute resolution, with testimonials from ABPI’s Center for Dispute Resolution, Mediation and Arbitration in Intellectual Property (CSD-ABPI) and its respective chambers – the Domain Names Dispute Resolution, and Mediation and Arbitration.

Launched in 1992 and published bimonthly, the ABPI Journal contains scientific articles signed by Brazilian and foreign experts, besides special sections aiming to promote culture and the use of Intellectual Property. It is available in a digital format through an application and distributed free of charge to courts and universities. Throughout the years, the publication has become a relevant source of consultation and study on intellectual property for members of the judiciary, law scholars, and professionals in the field. “The Journal’s great challenge is to maintain the promotion of academic knowledge in IP issues and, at the same time, gain in dynamism, with consistency notes and jurisprudential comments, accompanying the constant evolution of the themes,” says the Editor.
