As part of the Intellectual Property Rights Awareness Campaign for the year 2020, the College of Law at Al Falah University held a workshop for Dubai Carmel School students on the concept of intellectual property and its importance and ways to detect counterfeit products.

The delegation from AFU included Dr. Anan Younes and Dr. Lamia Raslan, Assistant Professors from the College of Law.

The workshop which targeted different age groups, aimed at highlighting the importance in preserving the copyrights of innovators and protecting them from people infringing on their rights by benefitting from their innovativeness without obtaining prior permission.

At the end of the workshop, the main thought that was stressed is the magnitude of intellectual property protection to encourage innovators to innovate more because of the existence of a law that protects their intellectual property.
