Justin Hughes & Ruth Okediji, A Scholars’ Look at International IP – Idealistic and Pragmatic (Loy. L. Sch., L. A. Legal Stud. Rsch. Paper No. 2023-03, 2023).

Abstract: In this chapter, Professors Okediji and Hughes discuss ways in which legal academics understand – and sometimes misunderstand – the negotiating environment in Geneva in which international intellectual property legal norms are developed. The chapter recognizes the insights of Professor Rochelle Dreyfuss and agrees with much of her analysis as to the best forum for developing new legal norms and the virtues of diversity and experimentation at the national level.
