Professor Sir Hugh Laddie, who died in November 2008, was perhaps the leading English judge and academic in the field of intellectual property law. He had a formidable reputation both within the UK and around the world and did much to shape IP law.

He retired from the bench in 2005 and the following year was appointed Professor of Intellectual Property Law at UCL where he founded the Institute of Brand and Innovation Law.

With the endorsement of his family, UCL is creating an academic Chair funded by charitable contributions in his memory.  The Sir Hugh Laddie Chair will be part of the Institute of Brand and Innovation Law, the living, practical IP academic centre  founded by Sir Hugh at UCL Laws, and will offer direct value to practitioners and major law firms. Like Sir Hugh, the Chair will be one of the most respected voices in the legal world.

UCL welcomes the participation of friends, alumni and others in the legal profession in establishing this tribute to Sir Hugh.

The inaugural holder of the Sir Hugh Laddie Chair in Intellectual Property Law is Professor Sir Robin Jacob.

We are continuing to raise funds to secure a lasting legacy to Sir Hugh. If you would like to make a donation to the Sir Hugh Laddie Chair in IP fund please use the form below OR you can give to the Fund online.
