About IBIL, Sir Hugh Laddie and the Sir Hugh Laddie Chair

Hugh Laddie
Professor Sir Hugh Laddie was perhaps the leading English judge and academic in the field of intellectual property law. He had a formidable international reputation and did much to shape IP law, both here and overseas.

Sir Hugh retired from the bench in 2005. He was appointed Professor of Intellectual Property Law at UCL in the following year and went on to found the Institute of Brand and Innovation Law. Following his untimely death in November 2008, and with the endorsement of his family, UCL set about creating an academic Chair funded by charitable contributions in his memory. The inaugural holder of the Sir Hugh Laddie Chair in Intellectual Property Law is Professor Sir Robin Jacob.
