KDJLaw – Proud Sponsor for ATC Students in the first INTA Asia Pacific Moot Court Competition
01 February 2018
INTA’s first Asia Pacific Moot Court Competition is on now. And KDJLaw is proud to be a sponsor for three students from ATC Law School.
Inspired by the continued success of INTA’s Moot Court Competition in the United States, INTA is pleased to launch the Asia-Pacific Moot Court Competition for the first time in Singapore on Friday, February 23 and Saturday, February 24, 2018. The competition is open to teams of students from law schools outside of the United States. The event aims to introduce law students to important issues arising in trademark and unfair competition law in the region and foster a healthy spirit of competition and camaraderie among participating teams.
The International Trademark Association (INTA) is the global association of trademark owners and professionals dedicated to supporting trademarks and related intellectual property in order to protect consumers and to promote fair and effective commerce.
The INTA Moot Court Competition in US has been running for more than two decades and is still going on strong, with constant participation from elite universities in the US.
Teo Kar Leong, Wan Yuen Mun and Valerie Chung Shu En will be holding the Malaysia flag high during this competition. They are the three students representing ATC at the competition. KDJLaw is proud to be a sponsor for them. They are currently competing at the Singapore Management University for the Moot Court Competition.
In the last ten years, ATC has become the one largest private law school in this region with two campuses in Malaysia (Kuala Lumpur and Penang) and one in Singapore, plus one joint venture partnership with the Hong Kong Polytechnic University.
“As an Alumni of ATC, we wanted to do something to give back to my alma mater, to thank them for their guidance and teachings. When this opportunity came up, it fits perfectly as we are both intellectual property lawyers and also active in various INTA’s activities.” Brian Law and Suaran Singh Sidhu are the co-heads of the Intellectual Property and Technology Practice in KDJLaw Malaysia, and both are well recognised figures in this practice area in the region.
