About Centre for Intellectual Property Rights
CIPR is a newly established centre in the HPNLU family. HPNLU has strived to establish itself as the Nodal Centre for Academics and Professionalism in legal education but has yet to specialize in Intellectual Property Rights. HPNLU’s aim is to create an enabling environment by modernizing the IPR infrastructure and implementing various programmes to raise awareness among professionals and the public will be a stepping stone to success.
CIPR conducts research in the field of intellectual property on a variety of socio-legal and socio-economic parameters, social strata, technological fields, R&D trends, and more such developments.
