Jemma Green, an associate in the intellectual property team at Clarion, has achieved a post graduate legal qualification from Oxford University.
Jemma, who has worked at Clarion since joining as a trainee in 2012, qualified as an associate two years later and chose to specialise in intellectual property law. She has now completed a one year Post Graduate Diploma in IP Law and Practice which covered the multitude of laws relating to different IP rights including Patents, Trade Marks, Unfair Competition and Passing Off, Trade Secrets, Designs, Copyright and Moral Rights, as well as key aspects of litigious and non-litigious IP practice and procedure.
Helen Saunders, head of HR at Clarion, comments: “As a firm that is committed to investing in training and developing our team, we were happy to support Jemma in achieving this prestigious qualification. Designed by the top London firms to equip their lawyers to deal with the complex field of IP rights, it was a challenging course and this has been an intensive year for her. Jemma studied part time, attending weekend tutorials, preparing course work and revising for an exam - all on top of working full time! Huge congratulations to her from everyone at Clarion.”
Structured to fit around professionals already working in IP law, the postgraduate diploma is a collaboration between the Oxford Law Faculty and the Intellectual Property Lawyers’ Association, and is taught by leading academics and practitioners.
