 In 2012, a nonprofit educational organization, the Japan Association of Universities for Intellectual Property Education and Research (JAUIP), has organized a first summer English seminar for IP studies in Japan. This seminar was intended for students from Asia or emerging countries who were interested in studying intellectual property in English.
 This year, the JAUIP plans to organize a likewise seminar for the period from August 26 through August 30 in Tokyo. There is another intensive seminar IP course in Osaka to be sponsored by Osaka Institute of Technology (OIT) from September 2 through September 6. The Osakaround seminar accepts students from the OIT allied and non-allied universities (non-allied students need to enroll from June 24 through July 6, 2013※),while the Tokyo-round seminar is open for students from overseas or foreign students studying in Japan.
 This year’s JAUIP summer seminar is going to provide more sophisticated IP-oriented program than that in last year with supports from IP-friendly organizations such as the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), the Intellectual Property Association of Japan (IPAJ) and the Japan Intellectual Property Association (JIPA). The program comprises basic lectures and advanced lectures, which will be featured with group discussions.
