IPOPHL’s cooperation with ALS university to create more IP professionals

The Intellectual Property Office of the Philippines (IPOPHL) and the Ateneo de Manila University School of Law (ALS) have recently worked together to create more intellectual property (IP) professionals through ALS’s Master of Laws (LLM) on IP which is being broadly recognized as a world-class program for learning the IP legal landscape.

On May 28, 2021, IPOPHL Director General Rowel S. Barba and ALS Dean Jose Maria G. Hofilea signed an MOU (memorandum of understanding) building cooperation between the 2 organizations.

At the virtual signing, Barba stated that: “We all know that ALS not only provides students with the resources and opportunities to reach their full potential and widen their perspectives, but it also encourages them to do so. But, more importantly, the institution is successful in challenging the next generation to achieve societal progress.”

“That is why it is such an honor to join hands with the ALS today and obtain its commitment to assist IPOPHL in fulfilling its goal of promoting IP as a vehicle for technical advancement and economic success,” the IPOPHL director affirmed.

Cooperation to achieve mutual benefits

According to the MOU, the two parties will work together in cohesion to guarantee that ALS’ LLM-IP program and other relevant professional programs sustain an international standard of knowledge and skills relevant to global and local IP laws and trends. The collaboration between the 2 renowned foundations will result in more IP practitioners with high-level skills which will not only aid the IP industry in particular but the economy in general. 

Furthermore, IPOPHL has announced that it will help ALS get its LLM-IP program accepted by the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) Academy.

The WIPO Academy’s support will assist ALS in the goal to recruit more enthusiastic IP professionals from all over the world. Moreover, IPOPHL will also promote ALS’s LLM-IP program among its government, academic, and professional partners and consequently, upskilling its people.

From ALS’s side

Under its collaboration with IPOPHL in good faith, the ALS will encourage its students to take up internship jobs at IPOPHL. At the same time, ALS will promote IP as a significant subject for research projects, including thesis papers. It will also support and develop IPOPHL’s learning, training, and research activities, and establish IPOPHL as a significant partner in the LLM-IP program. ALS will also look into offering aid and support in the form of scholarships or awards.

Lastly, both parties will strive to explore other areas of collaboration to help with the spread of IP awareness and education in the country and pursue other projects toward this goal. 

“We look forward to working hand in hand and shoulder to shoulder with IPOPHL for the expertise and commitment they bring in educating and exposing our students, in allowing creative thought and giving birth to knowledge and ideas, in forming lawyers responsible to their oaths,” ALS’ Hofileña said. 

He added that the signing is made more timely as it coincides with ALS’ 85th anniversary, “a wonderful way to give life to the conviction of the Ateneo Law School—committed to since its inception 85 years ago—to dedicate itself to championing the rule of law and the greater glory of God.”
