The Patent Colloquium is an annual conference on trends in patent law hosted by the Centre for Innovation Law and Policy (CILP) since 2011. Each year, the colloquium brings practitioners in patent law for one day to discuss new trends and developments in the field. Past keynote speakers have included Supreme Court justices, international scholars, and other leaders in the field.

Starting this year, the Patent Colloquium will be organised by the LIT group in collaboration with the CILP. From the topics to the speakers, the LIT group will play a key role in ensuring the day’s activities are informative and fun for all. The 11th annual Patent Colloquium will be held on Friday, November 11th, 2022, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.. It will feature three panels: 1) the patentability of computer-implemented inventions; 2) considering AI's effects on patent law including AI inventorship; and 3) the status of the "inventive concept" in Canada.
